The Sillon de Talbert is a natural spit of sand and shingle some 3 kilometres long. It never becomes completely submerged and is home to numerous seabirds. It is situated on our ‘Presqu’ile Sauvage’, the unspoilt peninsula only a few klms up the road. When we first arrived here and were looking for houses we stumbled upon the Sillon one Sunday afternoon. There were many people there walking their dogs, children playing and people flying kites. The national kite flying championships used to be staged here.
Yesterday l had it all to myself. Its a great place to go when you feel you really need to get away from everything and everybody and even better when there is a big high tide and the water is lapping either side of the path. You can almost imagine you are walking on water. More pics to follow over the coming months.
