At Le Crotoy the daily low tides of the estuary provide superb patterns in the mud and silt.
Close to Abbeville on the river Somme is the village of Eaucourt with its windmills and castle ruins.
The windmill is called “Moulin Guidon” as it served to “guide” boats into the port of Abbeville in the 17th century.
The chateau d’Eaucourt was built by the seigneurs de la Ferté duringhthe reign of Philippe Auguste (1186-1223). Demolished in 1358, it was rebuilt many times and inhabited until 1779 when it was broken down and converted to a farm. An effort to restore parts is currently in progress. Good luck with that.

Just south of Abbeville (Picardy) are a number of mills that are well worth visiting to take a photo or two.
Here are some images of Long in Picardy. A pretty little town sited on the river Somme where it’s original wealth was derived from digging peat.
Here are a few photos following a recent visit to Dublin. The coast is a great spot for photographers as there are opportunities for great shots regardless of the weather.
Chateau de Boutemont
Hidden gem. Well worth the visit.
