Cassis is a lovely little resort town on the Mediterranean that I had
the pleasure of visiting twice during my stay in Provence. As the second time was a surprise that caught me without my camera, these pictures are
all from the first time I went on July 2, 2000.

The Way There
After initially missing the bus from Aix, I caught
the train over and took an approximately 45-minute walk down to the
seaside. The weather was gorgeous warm and sunny all the way
which made it all the better to jump into the nice cool water when I got there.
The walls were as far as I got, because the place turned out to
be proprieté privé. As I was standing
here, a big black dog walked out along the top of the wall and
implied that I should vacate the premises.
The Calanques, which are huge limestone cliffs that project into
the sea. They're truly incredible formations. Furthermore, divers have
gone up underneath them and discovered submerged cave paintings, some of
the oldest known to exist!
