St. Malo has been around for centuries as it is perfectly situated for pirates, in the English Channel with the world’s most extreme tides. The city is walled and the French kings allowed asylum to all kinds of ruthless people in exchange for his piece, of course.
Unfortunately I didn’t bring in my camera because I was just tooting around for a bit, but the above scene cried out for a photo, so I did the best I could with my iPad.
I purposely did not Photoshop it because the perspective already seems fake, which to me is the attraction. You can really get a perspective of the big, beautiful Crystal Serenity in the background. Those real 15 – 30’ boats on shore at low tide look like toys.
St. Malo is another charming seaside tourist town with a few good sights and many good places to eat.
