Cassis and the callanques
Thursday morning, students met early in front of Lycée Georges Duby to leave for Cassis. After a bus ride, we arrived in the beautiful port town, where we took a quick train to get close to the beach. After a quick swim, we took a boat ride along the callanques (fjords) in the limestone cliffs and old quarries. Cliffs were up to 800 feet high and the water was clear blue, almost turquoise! Exploring the callanques, we went past the island where Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s (author of The Little Prince) plane was recently found, after having disappeared in 1944 flying on a mission during World War II.
After the boat ride, we went to the beach, where we had a picnic, went in the water, and enjoyed the sun!
