Tall ships

This is the time of year again. After a Covid related two years break, the “Escale à Sète” started 2 days ago and I was there sharp and early. 

One of the giant ships and namely the 🇷🇺 Russian “Shtandard” was not allowed entry. Quite right too. 

It is always quite impressive to see an old ship moored in the canal.

As usual, some beautiful ships to be seen. You can in theory climb aboard them but the queues were very long so I did not bother.

The overall atmosphere is good and jovial

There is entertainment for all ages

It is not all about boats and ships there is a lot about food and drinks.

I’ll be back for sure next year. After all, it is only an hour and a bit away and Sète is an extremely pleasant town…
