Pointe Saint-Clément

Here's a view of the road at the Pointe St.-Clément outside of Esnandes where we saw the fishing cabins (yesterday's post). The land rises up at this spot and there's a good view out over the bay and toward the ocean. We saw a few people up at the overlook and a camper parked down by the marsh. Otherwise we were alone with the birds.

Looking west out over the bay toward the Atlantic Ocean.

We walked around for a few minutes and took some photos and let Tahsa run off leash a little. She had been such a good dog in La Rochelle, she deserved a little freedom. But soon we were in the car again heading back to the rental house with a stop at a supermarket for a few things.

A view of the point, the marsh, and north into the bay toward the mouth of the Sèvre Niortaise River.

It was a long day and a lot of car-riding, but the beautiful weather made it worth it. When we got back to the house, Ken cooked the fish he found in the market that morning for our supper. We saved the oysters for the next day.


  1. I like seeing the barren coast.

  2. It sure sounds like a lovely vacation, and I'm so glad Tasha enjoyed it, too.

  3. What wonderful views! Reminds me of the times we went to the French coast with our 3 dogs in our camper (which, by the way, was quite a bit smaller and older than the beast in your picture - a Hymer undoubtedly). :)) Still, we had some great holidays there.

  4. mitch, and it was such a good day for it.

    evelyn, :)

    judy, she had a good time, and it's nice because she likes to ride in the car.

    elgee, three dogs in a camper!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
