EXCURSION TO THE CAPE SICIE

In the afternoon we went together with Claudie's sister and her husband near Six Fours where we climbed up high into the mountains to the Cape Sicié . It represents one of the most southern points of the French Riviera. Its summit is 352 meters, and on the top sits the chapel of Our Lady of May, and it is also the culmination of the highest cliff by the sea in Europe.

It was rather hard to walk up but the view from there was just breathtaking, although the weather was a little foggy over the sea.



Still a few meters to walk to get to the summit !



Going down was easier but we all were happy to sit down at the beach in Brusc a little town at the sea.



When we came home we changed into our "evening dresses" the Kaftans I had bought at the Brussels market, which are in velvet, very warm and comfortable. The fire in the stove was burning and it was nicely warm. After supper we watched a French Crime story !
