Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Heading south through France, the Canal Rhone a Sete branches off Le Petit Rhone and goes pretty much in a straight line to Frontignan and out onto L’Etang de Thau.  Having passed through the Camargue region, where wild horses graze on the banks, the scenery opens up to reveal enormous flamingo-dotted salt lakes on either side of the canal, rows of fishermens’ waterside cabanes and stone dividing walls in various states of dereliction.  There’s a silent, dream-like quality to this stretch of water, and it can take the best part of a day to navigate end to end, a task best scheduled for a bright, sunny day.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  5. Such a contrast to what I imagine a canal trip to be. The vastness of the salt lakes is particularly surprising. I can see how this would evoke a dream-like feeling. Lovely, Sandra.
