  • This was the last visit of the season, the guards visiting are very attached to their flagship under renovation which somewhat spoil her beauty to share the presence of scaffolding. Predict boots or a towel, to access must get their feet wet on the sandbanks. We are deposited by the equivalent of a landing barge, all adding a certain interest in the expedition.
