Forwards and backwards

Lîle de Ré is still alive and doing well in harmony with its ancient history.
The antique frames are mixed with modern life added new and old traditions.
The fortification doesn’t have the same function as in earlier times.
The fortress and the former courtyard now fulfill recreational functions.
Walls still shield the harbor, but not so much piracy anymore – only windy waves.
A local said with a big smile the only pirate here it’s the pub owner.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.
