Taking a break from reviewing and actually taking pictures 🙂 Not exactly artistic mind you, just a family afternoon walk, but real pictures nonetheless.
La Ciotat is a village on the Mediterranean coast of Provence, once a vast center of shipyards and later a ruined community of unemployed with no hope of finding a job again when the ship building industry shifted to cheaper, more profitable parts of the world.
Just over ten years ago, the dying village began to resurface as a fashionable place to just 20 minutes away from Marseilles and from the ashes of derilict buildings and houses started growing luxury villas and beach restaurants.
The old shipyards now service 70m luxury yachts and the old harbor has become a popular and bustling resort offering an intrguing mix of old and new, of chic and gruby, of hip and old-fashioned.
I leave you with a few more pictures from my week-end stroll.
