Arrival to Ile d'Yeu from Fromentine in the Vendée
The beach near our hotel - just a short walk from the town
Emily in the sea
The ruins of the old castle. This belonged to "the English" during the Hundred Years War
After initial hesitation, Emily discovered that she loved moules marinière!
We stayed at Hotel Flux which had simple rooms but a good restaurant, and is practically on the beach
Departure for the mainland
Back home in Montagrier, the gateway to our village, with our house where the cars & dog are parked
in our little park between the school and the church
We presented the swings in memory of my mother

This is Emily's "Dolphin Cottage"
With which she is well pleased!
