We decided to stay a few more days in Port du Frioul instead of moving over to Marseille. We really like it here, very peaceful, friendly people, good restaurants, pretty calanques for swimming, and a grocery store for provisioning. Marseille is a 15 minute ferry ride away and there are ferries leaving every hour from 7am until 10pm.
We docked alongside Quai #1. There are many mooring berths available (weekend was a bit crowded). GPS coordinates of our mooring location are: 43Deg16.696’N 5Deg18.383’E.
We spent a very nice day in Marseille and Port du Frioul yesterday with our friends Anne and Jean-Claude who live in Marseille, and my cousin Murray and his wife Belinda arrived today from Australia. They will be sailing with us as we continue East along the French coast. We are very happy to have them here. They did some sailing with us on our Catana 471 and enjoyed it real well, so it didn’t take too much convincing to get them to join us on Wildling for a while.
