Just a ho-hum day – but great SUN and…..what’s that coming out of the SEA???

CASSIS- Marseille – High of 45 – Low of 37 degrees – – –   PARIS – RAINY & 39 = ouch

High of 45 today!!    Impossible!  We were in the sun all day. It felt like 70 as we hiked and lay on the rocks.    Lovely lovely sun!  So, we are now getting warm inside as the temperature plummeted so quickly as the sun was setting.  I actually turned on the heat in my little car -& now in my apartment –  it got so incredibly cold, so quickly.

Time for using that new bathrobe -fluffy white and plush…….my luxury.

It’s impossible to bring a big robe back across the pond when it takes up so much room – unless ofcourse you have a vacuum bag that sucks everybit of air out of it – but it’s still going to take up a lot of room in a small carry-on suitcase. Thus, we splurged and bought one from IKEA.  My favorite home away from home.

Now, walking and hiking brings on a huge appetite and here is where we had our picnic today!  It was cool, very sunny, and we ate our lunch on the rocks.

Brilliant Sun, cold water

2 divers came out of that freezing cold water while were munching our sandwiches.  Jaw dropped, ham & lettuce fell out  of my open mouth and my eyes were glued to their svelte bodies wrapped in special diving suits as they walked past me, my head following their every move – – splat splat across the rocks, things dangling from them like goggles, spears, and then a huge lovely silvery fresh fish. No time to grab camera!!!  It cracked me up (inside) what a sight!! I didn’t laugh outloud but  I was just glad it was them, not me in that water.

I do admire those divers though.   But, my thing?     I CHERISH hot water – hot showers – especially.

It’s so important – we take such things for granted sometimes.

ALORS!   A day in CASSIS – A LOVELY hike, a memorable picnic.  Wish everyone of you could have been with us today…………….. IMG_8480
