Aigues Mortes and Flamingo’s

The first part of this week was drab and dreary weather wise. A total contrast to the glorious weather we enjoyed at the same time here last year. However, we had a smile on our face when we were confirmed for a sit in Mexico in late October.

Once the sun shined on Friday we were more than ready to get out and about with an enjoyable day trip to Le Grau-du-Roi. We hired some bikes (10 euros for 9 hours) and spent the day exploring this French holiday destination. We started with a long ride along the beach front before stopping for a bite to eat at a local boulangerie. Re-fueled we continued on to the 13th century walled city of Aigues Mortes. Along the way we were delighted to see some Flamingo’s in their natural habitat. We wandered the ancient streets of Aigues Mortes before returning to Le Grau-du-Roi. Our day concluded with a ride to La Grande Motte – a seventies designed concrete jungle of holiday accommodation. A well deserved beer sitting in the late afternoon sunshine on the beach front was an excellent way to end the day.

Saturday saw us watch the transhumance in a local village followed by an outing to a medieval festival only a few kilometres away. Sunday will be a trip to the French Bullfighting (where no Bulls will be killed) but all of this will be in our next video.

Thanks for the comments and feedback on last weeks video. Keep them coming to help me improve the quality.

Until next time.


    1. Thanks Sue, we really like this part of France. I’m still developing the best approach to the video blogs but glad you liked it. šŸ™‚


  1. I loved this video Glen, makes me feel like I am there. “Virtual” holidays sorted for 2018.
    If I knew anyone was going to travel to this region I would send it to them.
    Keep up the good work
