i know that place, very photogenic. but it gives me the creeps; the flow is strong, very dangerous. the view from some houses in that part of Gironde can be astounding, but i would not live up to the frustration of not being able to swim there (far, far too dangerous).
that is an amazing river bank. i enjoyed driving along there a lot. This was right after "marée haute", which made the scenery even more spectacular with the mud coming over the banks of the river. difficult to find a good view, of course. would have been nice to have access to one of these cabanes ... and - believe me - i did not neglect the wine
