THE MEDITERRANEAN PARK
I am in Ollioules in the South of France for a ten day holiday with my friend Claudie and her family.
It's quiet unusual even for the South of France that the temperatures are still so high so that I could drink my coffee outside on the terrace.
In the afternoon we went to Six Fours a little town along the sea. There is a very beautiful park with lots of exotic plants and flowers. The park is a like a beautiful wildness. On the top is a fortress "Cape Negre", a military structure reorganized under Louis Philippe in 1846 and is now converted into a museum and exhibition on maritime history and marine animals. From this small fort there is a panoramic view of the bay of Sanary and Embiez.
Palm trees and cactus
One was used for love messages
The landscape is quiet wild and the picture on right on the top was taken from the edge of a rock, far down to the sea. One step further and I would have fallen down.

After our walk we stopped at the beach and had a coffee, while watching people laying on the beach or even swimming in the water ! Amazing for nearly end October.
It had been a wonderful day.
