A trip to the sea

It was an easy ride from Aigues-Mortes down to le Grau-du-Roi despite the fact that the Mistral was a constant presence - and it didn't seem to matter what direction you rode in!

 Did I mention the wind?  The kite surfers were having a blast.  As you can see, lots and lots of condos.
 Looking out to see from the bridge.  Very definitely a working harbour with lots of fishing boats
a Camargue flamingo!
 On our ride back we stopped at the salt pans to do a tour in this little train.  Above is a view of the fort at Aigues-Mortes from there.  The pans turn pink as the water evaporates.  And the skies were just magnificent.

Was it in Chile that you visited the salt flats last year? Are you becoming a salt connoisseuse?
