29 September 2016 – Day at the Seaside

All-day visit to La Tamarissière

While the weather remains warm we propose a walk and visit to the seaside at La Tamarissière, at the mouth of the Herault river, on the opposite bank from Le Grau d’Agde. This is a walk that we did about 18 months ago, led by Ben, though this time we will go in the opposite direction.Hérault

The walk starts from the beach car park at La Tamarissière. We walk up the river for about 2 km before setting off on a quiet road between fields and small étangs, where there may be interesting birds. Eventually we reach the Canal du Midi, and return by that and its feeder canal to the coast, and then return along the beach. The whole walk is about 9km.

This is an all-day walk, so do bring a picnic. There should be time to enjoy the beach at the end of the walk, with a paddle or even a swim! The forecast suggests that this will be the last opportunity before the weather turns more autumnal next week.

As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, aiming to depart at 10:00. The walk itself will start from the beach car park at La Tamarissière, at about 11:00. We should be back in Lodeve by 17:00.

Leader: Andrew
Distance: 9km
Bring: Picnic, sun hat, etc.
