With the ship tied to the pier in Marseille, Laetitia and her group bussed to the small coastal fishing village of Cassis. There they boarded a small excursion boat for a tour of the village’s picturesque coastline. The secluded beaches and rocks were filled with nude sunbathers. The reaction of one member of Laetitia’s tour group inspired the day’s limerick.
On a Cote d’Azure boat ride, Denise
From her husband demanded surcease
From his penchant to stare
At the sunbathers bare
On the rocks near the town of Cassis.
