En Vau

En Vau

Really quite complicated without a map despite the obvious orientation of the sea on one side. Also with no habitation bar a youth hostel which is right at the near end to Cassis anyway it is a long walk and until you know why a certain path should be taken a rough one too.
You will meet many people here, many who are putting a lot of effort into their trekking.

The best climbing ever!

Cap Canaille

Cap Canaille. For limestone, red is more loose and unreliable, probably great climbing but a great view anyway from Cassis to the East. This would be approached with a long walk in and out but it is only one ridge so not really much chance of getting lost. The other direction to Marseille is really quite complicated without a map despite the obvious orientation of the sea on one side. Also with no habitation bar a youth hostel which is right at the near end to Cassis anyway it is also a long walk and until you know why a certain path should be taken a rough one too.

The Castle

The Castle

This is straight down at the sea, usually gentle in the Mediterannean to my knowledge but I know fairly rough of course at times. It’s a big piece of water. I was just up from Cassis where the houses have tall walls and not really much going on there for tourists except to walk on the thin road for a mile and then down again unless like me you stop an paint. There is an artist culture in the Village I am sure but will have to go again to find the history of it. I like drawing water and consider it a technique as the thing to do is to get the look you want. With water our eyes fool themselves to work it out because either you focus on a wave or see 100’s or 1000’s of things going on. So painting it is not so straight forward either and form Turner to Hockney, Pop art to photography the examples are all different. I look for a pattern and hope you can see it.
