Day Five – Calming Cassis

 

After three days of vintage shopping in high gear, we were ready for a relaxing day in the beautiful town of Cassis, right on the Mediterranean.

 

Lots of charming shops.

I still want this dress.

Jill (on the left) took us into a pharmacie – a drugstore with very knowledgable people.  Cathy C & Cathy G both bought face creams, and vow to return to Provence for refills.

I was intrigued with this display.

Even the streets were pretty.

Cathy G soaking up the sunny scenery.

Judy sporting her stylish hat.

The Good Husband, Raoul, in his element on the water.  He is a natural sailor.

We were all mesmerized by the magical colors of the water inside the calanques (finger-shaped inlets) along the coast.

Far too soon, it was time to head back into the port.

Time for lunch.  Two French words I could remember right away – chaud chevre – hot goat cheese.  I was so busy stuffing this into my face that I didn’t get a nice shot of lunch location – looking right out onto that dreamy port.

We wandered the side streets after lunch.

Our terrific time in Cassis ended with a visit to this soap shop, which was pleasing to the eye as well as the nose.

A magnificent day!
