A day at Cassis on the Mediterranean shore. We hired a taxi to take us from Marseilles to Cassis for a few hours before we left for the USA. We had a nice
long lunch at the outdoor cafe and dreamed about owning one of the many boats that
were along the pier.
The water was wonderful, but the beach is very rocky, so not much barefoot-in!!
more to come.......

We did it!!!
Five adventurous women set out from Kansas to discover the wonderment of southern France. We were not disappointed!! The shopping was out of site at all the little markets we sauntered through in Apt, La Marouin, Rousillon, Avignon (the best for antiques), Bonniieux and for wine we visited the Chateau La Canorgue in Villenevri, then to I Isle sur le Sorgue, Aix en Provence and Marseilles and our trip to the Mediterranean and the little town of Cassis.
We had lunches and dinner at little cafe's though out the region and the food was
always delicious. The coffee was heaven.
Each market was filled with sensory overload in sight and smell. Yummy breads, fruit that looked fake, but, oh so good to the taste! Flower vendors, candy, cheese, fish, clothes, scarves, shoes, handbags, baskets, jewelry, tablecloths, etc. The fish was a little fishy and I usually moved right along!!
