Bouzigues again


In warm sunshine, 16°C, on Monday we had a family day out to Bouzigues. Quite a change from last week’s snow! As we usually do, we wondered along the shore where the producers’ huts and workshops are, looking at the boats, the nets and the work that was going on, asking a few questions of one of the producers and learning and seeing something new as we do each time. We saw these ropes of oysters that had just been glued on and were lying in corrugated racks ready to be taken out to the beds, the frames that you can see in the distance in the photo above.

As we often do, we had lunch at Chez le Tchepe, a café where the owners’ own production is displayed in crates at the counter. For the first time, I ordered couteaux or razor clams, they were tasty if rather chewy compared with oysters, and served with a delicious salsa of olive oil, red onions, tomato and green pepper:

After lunch as we walked by the fishing port a huge dark cloud came over the lagoon – time to go home!

  1. It is marvelous to see floating boats. I can’t remember ever seeing this kind of boat in that position anywhere except in your pictures. I’ve never had razor clams and am fascinated to see how they look. I’d need quite a bit more than two of those to make a meal, however. I suppose you had other things to eat at that meal.

  2. Such wonderful weather following such a bad spell. Of course you took advantage in the form of an outing! I’ve only seen razor clams on television’s cooking shows and will certainly try them if I ever see them, either alive or on a menu. Your closing photo is quite nice, a fitting way to end a family outing.
