Les Artifices La Ciotat

I just returned from a fireworks show, pre-Bastille Day celebration at the port of La Ciotat. They decided to put their show on tonight instead of tomorrow for La Fête Nationale. This is the big holiday in France commemorating the storming of the Bastille in Paris in 1789.

I captured some of the grand finale.

The show was short, but nice.

 

Hiking and Sunset at St Cyr-sur-Mer

The hike through St. Cyr-sur-Mer was awesome. The first part is coastal and then you get to go through a beautiful coastal forest. We only stayed along the coastal walk because it was getting late. You can actually take the whole hike to Bandol which is about 11km away. I plan on doing that really soon. If you want more info on the village of St. Cyr-sur-Mer, check out their official website at http://www.saintcyrsurmer.com/en/

Here is a video I took while stopping to look at an ancient industrial site.

Here is a video I took of the gorgeous sunset we got to enjoy on our hike. Man this place is beautiful. I can’t wait to experience it again.
