This Was the View From Our Balcony in Marseille

 

from there we could see a quarter of the harbour and the Fort Saint-Jean on the horizon...
it’s a fortification in Marseille, built in 1660 by Louis XIV at the entrance to the Old Port...

I have never seen so many boats, Peter
....peter:): there were quite a few of them in the old port Lisl... and that doesn't include the other 3/4 of the harbour for the commercial and cruise ships piers....petersmile

I think that old fort has seen better days Peter. Just look at the number of boats!
....peter:): believe it or not Chris... it is still a functioning port... there are a lot of pleasure craft there... the other 3/4 of the harbour is for the commercial and cruise ships piers....petersmile
How do those boats ever get out? grin
....peter:): much easier when you look at the docks at right angles Bill....petersmile

It looks almost impossible to get some of the boats out Peter, but I’m sure it can be done. Lovely view.
....peter:): it's much easier to see how they get out when you look at the docks at right angles Chad.... it was a lovely view....petersmile
Je me demande comment on retrouve son bateau dans un tel rassemblement? Le port de Marseille est surchargé mais si joli... Bisous à  tous les 3
....peter:): peut-être l'utilisation du GPS pour retrouver leurs bateaux Marie ... hihihi ... c'est un port très fréquenté mais tellement beau en même temps...
Bisous de nous 3
Enough boats for a year of Fridays./
....peter:): i was thinking about that Tom... but there are many more to see around the worls and at home....petersmile
