Bird song

Frank has childhood memories of the Camargue, images of wild white horses, pink flamingos, rice paddies and vast plains of marshland slowly disintegrating into water. So we take a little detour and find a spot by the Etang de Vaccarès just as the sun is setting. I haven’t heard so many different birdcalls all in one place for a long, long time!

On a lookout point, we meet a German couple, who are just as open to meet friendly strangers as we are, and we get talking about all sorts of things, while watching the flamingos and other birds. They have a wonderful sense of humour and an appreciation of life – the Germans, that is. It is very inspiring to witness such zest for life from Theresa, despite a debilitating chronic arthritic condition that keeps her wheelchair bound. We share a few songs and stories as the light fades into a spectacular display of colours.
