Culture and Thievery in Marseille

01 July 2014 | Marseille France

Marseille is a treasure of museums and ancient forts and French restaurants. We received helpful information and maps from the tourist office and enjoyed the modern as well as ancient sites. We used our extra time to get laundry completed and do some provisioning.
The Yacht Club had a wonderful dining room where we had the best meal in France to date. Unfortunately our visit was marred by the theft of our folding bicycles. We had returned from a shopping trip to the Yacht Club berth around 7:30 pm and both bikes were locked to a post with our heavy cables under a covered private parking area of the Club about 30 feet from our boat. While we spent 15 minutes to stow our market purchases, in broad daylight, 30 feet from us, on Yacht Club property with many people going and coming, the bikes vanished! We were sick. Not only are bicycles a fast and convenient way to see cities and villages, these bicycles folded neatly in canvas bags and stored in the boat’s lockers. With Dave’s bad knee and recent surgery, biking was much easier than walking. Oh, well, nothing could be done. Yacht Club members commiserated with us but all had stories of their own regarding stolen bikes and scooters.
Dave’s sister and brother-in-law, Norma and Mike, from Santa Cruz, CA, arrived from Paris by train the next day, July 1. They enjoyed a full day of Marseille sight-seeing and a sumptuous Yacht Club dinner with us before we all set off together for the infamous Golfe du Lion in southern France. The mistral had blown itself out over the past 2 days, so we were set to leave on July 3.
