La Rochelle - August 2016.

Just bought a second hand French SUV so naturally we drove to France to test it out, would you believe, in this day and age you still have to stick stickers on you headlamps to deflect the beams.
Perhaps French manufacturers haven't discovered a simpler way of doing it yet, perhaps they should take a look at Volvo for inspiration.
Ann and I caught the Ferry from Poole to Cherbourg, arriving early afternoon. (If you do the same trip, fill up with fuel before going as there seems to be a distinct lack of Garages on the way down).
We arrived around 20:00 and went straight out to find a bar. The place was heaving with French tourists as you can see from the pictures. I have not seen so many Restaurants filled in many a year.
Ann and I were in La Rochelle for three nights and had a great time with plenty of walking and loads of opportunities for photographs.
I have included a few including some panoramas from La Rochelle and one from Mont Saint Michel which we drove by on the way back.
You can see more on my Web Site or Flickr.
