This past weekend, we drove to the Mediterranean coast. Direction to Cassis, less than 2 hours away from home, we drove to the one of the most beautiful places in France, les calanques.
If you have been to Marseille, or La Ciotat, you must have seen also the calanques. It's white stones, turquoise
water and great views attract tourists from all over the world.
We drove to the center of Cassis, trying to find free parking place. We we finally found place where to park, free and not that far from the road that will descend to the bay area. After 20minutes, we were at the first harbour, La Calanque de Port Miou (the first one in the map on right). We stopped to take few pictures of the boats and then continued towards Port-Pin.
Altogether the walking until Port-Pin was about 40minutes. And guess who left the swimming suite at home? Both of us. We had checked the forecast that morning, and it was showing only 23 celsius, cloudy and little bit of wind - so we didn't think it would be warm enough to swim in the sea. And how wrong we were! The heat got until 30 celsius, no wind and no clouds! And we just sat there on the rocks looking how all the rest of the people were swimming.. ouch. From now on, if we make any trips at summer time, I'll have my bikinis with me.
We sat on the rocks, had picnic, took sun and then had a walk until the end of the Port-Pin.
We spend whole day there, and when we walked back to the car - we were so tired from the walking, sun and dehydraded (even we had water with us). At home, I just fell asleep.
Sunday morning, we were getting ready for the fishing trip with F&C.
We drove to the Gard department, and spend the day fishing, taking sun and having fun.
This time, I did take my bikinis with me and went swimming on the river for the first time this year!
The result of this trip was 1,4kg fish (it was F who got it) and sunburns.
Note to self: buy sunscreen!
How was your weekend?
