Cassis, Provence

We had an agenda-free day on the tour so four of us hired a taxi and headed to Cassis, a coastal town along the French Riviera famous for its cliffs, the sheltered inlets called calanques and lots of boats.  For me it was an opportunity to roam around and capture some local color on a beautiful day. We took the boat ride to 5 inlets to admire the rock formations and then enjoyed a terrific lunch along the waterfront. For largest display, click on the individual photograph.
