The blue Mediterranean it never fails to please, an enticing kaleidoscope of magical blues, one shade more prettier than another, and if you follow them out to the sea... well you won't be disappointed.
Come along with me, let's hop a small boat from the small port town of Cassis, ride the waves out to the sea of swirling blues.
Take a seat on the outside of the boat, yes it could chilly, and possible wet, but to see the giant stone canyon walls along the coast, with the various formations, is worth the ride on the outside of the boat.
Plus the sea... oh my, you will be tempted to dive in.
A kaleidoscope of magical blues, I kid you not!
Grabs me every time.
I cannot stand how achingly beautiful it is.
Majestic knows no other crown.
What shade of blue do you like best?
I kid you not... unbelievable blue,
Long long time ago when Chelsea was three, French Husband took our friend Paul and his eight year old daughter Brittney (our Godchild who was recently married) out to the cliffs along Cassis.
Those two Dads jumped off the cliffs with their daughters.
The daughters had a wonderful adventure.
The mothers had a fit when they found out...
A royal fit.
Okay just to set the record straight, not the cliffs above but the ones below on the left....
Why hang out on the beach drinking a pastis?
Why sail on a boat?
When you can jump in.
Isn't it grand? A photo tour of the Mediterranean coastline without having to put on a swimsuit or get seasick!
The boat tours are available along the port in Cassis. They leave (during the summer) every thirty minutes, or when the boat is full. Several tour options are avaiable, the longest one is an hour and a half, less than 20 Euros per person.
Do not go out if the Mistral is blowing and you see white caps on the waves... unless you don't mind getting wet, and your stomach doesn't do somersaults.
