The Gironde is the river that flows through the city of Bordeaux and then out to the Atlantic via a sizeable estuary. Carralets are fishing jetties, many of them still operational which have a very appealing rickety structure. Fishing is done by lowering a very large net at the end of the jetty and then raising is again hopefully full of estuary fish. I've been there twice so far and I have to say that the combination of the Carralets, the scenery and the food and wine made it one of my most pleasurable photography expeditions yet.
