The main port was surrounded by colourful shacks containing also sorts of industry, from fishing to arts and crafts, each painted in a different pastel colour – perhaps originally brighter but now faded by the sun and sea. Most of the buildings were sagging and slumping, much like the archetypal drunken sailor.

  1. Great photos for a camera phone Dave. Love the snaps of the Islands and seaside architecture.

    You have done well to get so far in such a short time and not even a broken spoke.

    I must tour the Vendee and Atlantic Islands.

    Take care out there.
