Ruth says: The Camargue, the area famous for white horses, bulls, rice, wine and flamingoes. We stayed in a town called Les Stes-Maries de la Mer, a very Spanish type town with whitewashed buildings a bull ring and flamenco dancers. We walked through the wetlands Bill Odie style trying our best to take photos of the thousands of bright pink flamigoes. The second photo down is our best effort. Every time we got anywhere near close enough they decided that it was time to leave, so you'll just have to use your imaginations- there were thousands of them, and they were pink!
As you can see we also sampled the local wine, and checked out another species of wildlife when we stumbled upon a film shoot with actors in soldiers uniforms, and then after some confusion when we were hurried on, realised that we were on a naturist beach.
Bob says: The Carmargue is one big nature reserve and we were interested to see the area marked Zone Naturiste for more flora and fauna. Unfortunately this turned out to be a nudie beach, who'd a thought it. Anyway, I was about to leave in disgust when Ruth stripped off, started sun bathing and insisited that mini-bob make an appearance. Well the wife's always right thats what I say.
