Just home after two wonderful days in the Camargue in the south of France, west of the Rhone delta. Could have spent a week. Too tired to post tonight, but here are a few pix to get you interested:

Two white horses of the Camargue

Flamingoes take up to four years to become pink. The colour comes from the carotene in the shrimp they eat

A bull round-up. The cowboys are guardiens and the Camargue bulls are bred for the French version of bullfights where none are killed.

The restaurant terrace at our hotel that was also a riding stable
