Paris by the sea

Just a few hours drive from Paris awaits another world, one I've posted about before, Île de Ré, an island south of Brittany off the French Atlantic coast in the Poitou-Charente region. Sometimes called Paris' 21st arrondissement (many Parisians keep résidences secondaires here), it's a mecca of unspoiled white fishing villages that embrace tiny ports, and where we recently spent five days to take advantage of this perfect September weather.

 Starting tomorrow I will be posting more photos from our trip and hope, for those who cannot travel to France right now, that they will inspire travel plans for the future. BPJ
