Blue skies in Picardy – what more to ask?  This is le Crotoy and its idiosyncratic hotel/restaurant, Les Tourelles, now restored and looking lovely, just like the personnel in the picture.

In the other direction lies the Somme estuary (see picture below). On the other side of the estuary is St Valery, a larger and equally attractive town, with stunning domestic architecture, high town walls and the start of the steam railway line back to Le Crotoy.
