We travelled down through Picardy in Northern France on Monday morning. It is a vast area and beautiful, but a bit boring as there is not much to see from the motorway. We decided to stop off near the coast for a breath of sea air. I fancied the look of St Valery Sur Somme which is situated on the amazing Baie de Somme.
The whole area is a great place to view nature. It has great bird watching spots and also seal colony's.
St Valery definately looked "out of season" - very very quiet but still great to look around - and without the crowds.
It is a great little town with typical french houses.
It has a wonderful long promenade - I think you could walk for miles along here.
We saw people hiring Kayaks and Canoes to explore the Baie and the Somme river and canal.
Despite being bombed everytime someone mentioned "war", a lot of the old medeival town still exists.
It was a great place to stretch our legs and explore. I wouldn't mind spending a bit more time around this area in future. xxx
