Pic of the Day: Beachside Cassis
Gorgeous Cassis is a 45 minute drive South of Aix and East of Marseille in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It's a popular destination for tourists and hikers who spend day trips hiking the calanques to Marseille. A French girl in my class said that she and her boyfriend did the hike in two days last fall and camped outside under the twilight! Also fascinating is that the rock at the base of the Statue of Liberty comes from Cassis and was given to the US from France. Neat!
