Picardy (France) – 06/2010

by Administrator on Jul.05, 2010, under Events

I traveled to Europe recently. I visited the “Picardy” area in North of France. I was mainly around two very close towns:  Saint-Valery Sur Somme and Le Crotois.

I had never seen those towns before, as I was more familiar with “Le Touquet” from a bit above in  “North Pas-de Calais”.

The weather was sunny, with a little breeze. We lodged in a Bed and Breakfast and a hotel. The B&B had definitely its charm, very restful atmosphere. It had no sea view but it was quiet but for the birds singing in the backyard. “Un havre de paix”, as we say in french. Too bad the stay was so short.

We walked a lot, took a bike for a few hours journey. The place comes loaded with a sense of slow speed and rest.

The food was obviously excellent. We mostly got sea food. Phenomenal gray shrimps (crude oil ‘free’ :-( ),  mussels, fish, locally grown oysters… you name it.

So, let me share my short stay with you through those photographs.
