The Camargue


Guest shot from M.'s mother

On one of our day trips we visited the Camargue, a coastal region of Southern France where the mistral winds blow. It is wild and lovely. The Camargue horses and pink flamingos are a natural part of the landscape. We went riding through the marshes then headed down to the shoreline for some lunch and tried one of the local delicacies - telline clams. The great white dunes in the photo below are one of the two major products of the region, salt! The other is rice.

It reminds me a bit of the Carolina outer banks. I'll have to put it on my list of laces to visit.
