All work and no play...not today on l'Île de Ré!

After a busy week and given the balmy temperatures, we decided to treat ourselves to lunch in Saint Martin de Ré. Plenty of people thought likewise: lots of couples, families, cyclists, runners all enjoying the ambience of this pretty little port, still humming with activity in late November.

 

Under an hour's drive from Le Vincent, Île de Ré is a little gem on the Atlantic coastline with plenty of beaches, villages and cycle paths to explore along with restaurants serving wonderful seafood. Was hoping I would snap this cormorant with its catch of the day, but he was happy to pose for me instead!
