We even took the buses, which I honestly don't suggest unless you're traveling with someone who knows what he or she is doing. And if it's summer...well, they are hot and smelly and crowded and by the time we headed back to our hotel to change and freshen up for Aix I felt nothing short of disgusting. Heh.

I will say this - that ferry had some pretty darn amusing, err, signage:
|"When boarding, I slap you in the face with my ticket!"|
|"When the ferry is moving I touch my significant other in inappropriate places."|
|I don't even know WHAT to say about this one.|
|(Plus the views were great)|

|Hamming it up. It's what I do best.|
We ended up having to wait a good 30 minutes for a ferry, because one stopped at the island but was so full of people going to the other Frioul island that it had to drop them off and come back to get us. We spent the time trying to stay out of the sun and watching a little old French man hang out on the dock and fish. I'm pretty sure he just took the ferry out to literally just hang out, fish, and talk to tourists. Too funny. (And too cute)
We finally got on a ferry and headed back to the port. There were some great views of Chateau d'If on the ride, but unfortunately the ferry was so crowded and it was so frowned upon for you to walk around while it was moving that I didn't really get any. I did catch a decent shot of Notre Dame, though :)
And then it was time to make a quick stop back at the hotel and get ready for our last night in France!
