  • The Bay of Cassis - Photo Friday - 22 January 2010

    This stunning Bay of Cassis in Provence.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="The bay of Cassis (click for larger image)"]The bay of Cassis[/caption] This stunning view of the Bay of Cassis in Provence (near Marseilles) was taken from one of the many ‘view points’ around the coast on the winding cliff top road between Cassis and La Ciotat.  What a picture cannot always convey is the warmth of the sun, the glistening sea and unmistakable scent of the South of France. You really need to ‘be there’ so go on – put Cassis on your ‘must visit’ list this year.
