I arrived at Marseille St Charles railway station by metro on the blue number 1 line and really didn’t need to venture outside. However, the station is known for its grand approach.
When I was there, it was very hot, the blue sky and white stone were dazzling. It was tempting to go back into the station building and stay cool, but I had to check it out.
The view was fabulous, all the way to Notre Dame de la Garde on the hill to the far right. I nearly stayed put at the top, but I’d seen photos and wanted to see the stairs going up. I’d need to save my energy so I went slowly down.
It was worth it.
104 steps, I went back up even slower, pretending that I was stopping to enjoy the view, but actually saving my breathe and my knees!
LOOK UP is this weeks Lens-Artist Photo Challenge and Patti is in wonderful Florence.
A couple of weeks ago, I was on holiday in Marseille, on the Cote d’Azur. I spent a long morning on the water between Marseille and Cassis, beneath limestone cliffs, some of the highest in the Med.
Here I spotted a man scrambling up the cliff, watched by a girl sunbathing in a yellow canoe and another and one in pink!
That guy must have scraped his knees getting up there!
Becky’s back in Winchester Cathedral for the flower festival, and there are just two days left in Pink September!
