Port Vendres, Roussillon, France 2008
AA suggested that the boat in my last post looked clean and little used.
So I present this one – moored a few kilometers along the coast.
We spent a week or so on the Cote Vermeille and I have a folder of images of local boats (especially les Barques Catalan – of which more later).
This was one of my favourites. It may not have the most elegant lines or the most colourful finish, and might need a refit soon, but here is a boat that’s doing what it was designed to do.
Is it better to work a boat, or leave it on the beach for we tourists to look at?
I think Port Vendres is a wonderful place for the same reason, because it’s still doing what it grew up doing.
