Cassis

Began our search for the beautiful calanques (coves) of Cassis in the little, adorable beach front city (where we later rewarded ourselves with crepes):

Approaching our first cove – Calanque de Port-Pin (I don’t know about you, but I personally have never seen water this clear in my life):
