Perhaps one of the most beautiful spots in France are the Calanques. Located between Marseille and Cassis, they are small inlets of water that have the most unique shades of blue.
A Colombian friend of mine, David, invited me to join him in Marseille for the weekend. He works in Marseille as a Spanish assistant and has been incredibly kind to me the entire time in France. We met online in the Marseille assistants group. I had a night stay in Marseille after returning from Switzerland, and I needed I place to stay. I posted on the facebook group wall and David immediately offered to host me. He had never met me before but was so kind.
David is a great photographer so when he offered to do a photo shoot at the Calanques, I jumped at the opportunity to work with him. We hiked with two other assistants from Cassis into the Calanques to explore the gorgeous inlets. We ended up at plage perdue (Lost Beach) and had a picnic before shooting. I had so much fun, and I fell in love with Cassis in the process.
One of the cool parts of the trip was discovering Poisedon’s hole. There is a small hole about the size of a tennis ball on one of the cliffs that goes straight down to the water. Every time the water hits the rocks, the sound reverberates up the hole, creating a strange phenomena: the hole sounds like it is breathing. It is creepy but really funny to listen to. It’s easy to imagine an old gentleman trying to catch his breath after riding the waves.
