Mers Les Bains

For beach Belle Epoque architecture we hit the jackpot at Mers le Bain. At one time there were some 300 such villas, and many remain. After a morning's walking tour in a gale--helped along by a TI guide--we had a great lunch at a restaurant on the main square.
On the beach front, looking north

And south

Art Deco; for the rest, I'll just let the pix speak for
themselves; even in ugly weather, the place was
fairly crawling with people with cameras

And this was not the smallest one! Eating northern hemisphere
mussels can be an exhausting experience, where the feed
conversion ratio must approach zero...
