Boat Friday

 

the fishing port of Cassis, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur ; French Riviera.

 

Located on the southern edge of France, between Marseilles and Toulon, Cassis has the appeal of a coastal fishing village and the relaxed feel of a Riviera beach without the massive crowds.

It looks like a brilliant place to chill out.
....peter:): we did some chilling out... had a great meal under an awning with a good view of the port... then we took a tour boat to the calanques/fjords in the afternoon....petersmile

Blackcurrant is a lovely name for a port Peter.
....peter:): i didn't know that Cassis translates to Blackcurrant in English Chad... i have learned something new today....petersmile
I love that you have a boat docked there too. It is a wonder Astrid has not been there before you.
....peter:): thanks Mary... i should have named one of them Astrid... that would be fun....petersmile

I like the way the little boats are moored right up to the street, Peter
....peter:): just like they were at parking meters Lisl....petersmile
Looks a delightful place to stay Peter
....peter:): we only had a day to visit Cassis... we stayed as late as we could to get back to our mill before dark....petersmile
To me this is the archetypal French fishing village.
....peter:): you are being very smart today Brian... i had to look up the definition for "archetypal"....petersmile
Beautiful picture, I know this region, from Monte Carlo to Marseille, but I had never been to Cassis, thanks for filling the gap.
