Cassis

Sitting down and bringing out your map, is like bees to honey. It's very easy to strike up a conversation when your map is open. Virginia,  the very helpful English woman from the bike shop in Montpellier gave me lots of tips for great motorcycling roads, some I had ridden, some were in a direction I was not travelling but the road to Cassis was what I decided to do. Cassis is a tiny coastal village squeezed into a narrow cove with huge cliffs either side. The roads in and out of course are windy and full of hairpins. More practice!! Once in town I headed straight for the beach to swim. 

 Yes, it did remind me of my friend who has a little yellow car!!
