South France

We took a day trip to Cassis, a small fishing village near Marseilles, know for its small coves lined with steep, dramatic walls of white limestone. This town does not receive the publicity of Nice or Cannes, yet it is absolutely stunning.

We took a boat tour and was able to go into the inlets and experience these beautiful clifts which are France's highest coastal cliffs. Our guide spoke in French, as well as everyone on the boat with us. But it didn't matter, the beauty was enough for us to experience.

With stunning views of the Gulf of Cassis we walked the streets and shopped in the quaint shops along the water.

 There's also a nine-mile drive along the peaks with plenty of turnouts so you can stop and take pictures. A beautiful day and a beautiful place I would love to come back to again.
