There are so many places in the world calling themselves the Land of 1000 Lakes. The one I visited today is an important wetland in central France. It is a mixture of woodland, meadows and lakes sheltering a huge amount of wildlife, but along with that it has an interesting history. The lakes, almost all man-made, were first dug in the Middle Ages, but emptied during the Revolution.
These photos may give you a feel for the place, as I enjoyed the early autumn sunshine.
