Postcards from the French Mediterranean
In my last video highlighting plastic in the Med, I promised some pictures from the French Mediterranean coast. Here they are. I'd been fearing that this coast would be a continuous line of urban sprawl, but the development is - compared to Spain - well zoned and natural spaces are frequent too.
First days in France were sailing past low-lying land, long beaches and salt water lagoons. Further east the terrain is rockier, with impressive cliffs, beautiful islands, stunning coves and beaches. Early morning is the nicest time to sail. Later on thousands of boats that carve up the sea, and the sun is harsh.
