We had a special trip to the Ile de Ré for the New Year celebrations. Not only is is it 1 January, but also my husband's brithday, due to complete lack of forethought by his parents. We arrived in St Martin de Ré during the afternoon and went for a walk around town. More about that in another post.
When the fog became a bit much for us (as I said - more another time!), we went to have a look at the indoor market and found stalls and stalls of delicious seafood just waiting for the celebrations later that evening.
Lobsters and crabs, langoustines and prawns.
Fish caught the previous night.
The Ile de Ré is famous for the salt produced there. It is apparently much sought after, and all sorts of varieties are on sale.
Then we went back to the hotel for the most delicious banquet for our Reveillon meal.
