Views of the Vendee

The Vendee coast has everything from the most amazing wide sandy beaches, to busy harbours, salt marshes and rocky coves accessible only at low tide.

In the course of five days we visited the length of the coast from Noirmoutier-en-l'ile in the north to Brem-sur -Mer in the south. (We'll forget about the visit to La Roche sur Yon...)

Here are a selection of photos travelling north to south along this route...

So much to see and so many memories. Wish we were there.....

Suoer pics and memories.
Colin looks like one of Terry Wogan's 'racing snakes'!

Very fit.

One day.... but I'd rather not have the illness that goes with it.

Lovely seaside photos. It's a beautiful area.
We often used to go at this time of year, just before the season had properly started and the hordes of visitors arrived, it's so peaceful when you have it all to yourself.
