St Malo port, 22/9/17

I did have a sea view from my hotel room in St. Malo. Kind of.

Last day in France. Despite the hassles getting here, it was a good trip.

St Malo sunset, 21/9/17

Told you the sea came in…. the fort out there is the spot from where I took yesterday’s photo, at low tide. At high tide, and high winds…. wear waterproofs while walking along the sea front at St. Malo.

St. Malo

St Malo, 20/9/17

St Malo is on the northern coast of France, close to where the coast of Brittany takes a turn to the north and becomes Normandy. The old town is behind a complete ring of 17th century fortifications built to defend against the nasty English and Dutch. The tidal range here is extensive, some 45 feet between high tide and low; the broad beach you see here is completely covered by several feet of water twice a day.
