The Somme Bay ... What Is That ?

After spending two decades of holidays in my family house in the Somme bay, I can safely say out loud my thoughts on the place. Warning, it'll be nasty !

It's soo tiny.

Estuary in the Picardie region in the North of France, the Somme bay is a land of 28 sq foot filled with sand, shells, birds and lazy butts mammals communly called seals. A river smartly nammed Somme runs throughout Picardie and ends up joining the Channel (that's where the bay is, at the end of the land part). The Somme is known for its WWI battlefields, also.

Big brother is watching. If you are bored at work, you are just a click away from watching your beloved landscape. (Don't look at me, I never do that. Ever. I swear. Especially not at work.)

Snoozing lazy butts are striking a pose

Seals are the BFF's of fishermens. Sharing the fishes very fairly. Half and half. They even have a contract to smile for tourist during boat rides. All summer is seals show. Every day for 3 months. Amazing event. Book your ticket in advance. (All of that was sarcasme).
