The Fishing Hut

(otherwise known here as a carrolet. A structure typically passed down through the family, and used for drop-netting small fish, crayfish and eels)

Good to see these different ways of life.
Probably something the average tourist would not get to know about.

Thanks for the comment - here's a close up of the hut....

We don't get many average tourists here, to be honest. It's mainly a French destination, with many holiday homes in the region. In that respect pretty much everyone knows of the carrolets, but they are a novelty to foreigners, for sure. The ones on the coast are sturdier and bigger, like the second and third photos.

Thanks for the reply and extra photos.
Those coastal ones look serious! Not quite the charm of the older river ones.
Those, river ones, would definitely be part of my touristy list. If I knew about them :)

From Vorma, the main river feeding off the largest lake in the country, Mjøsa. Tapped down in anticipation of the spring flood, when the snow in the mountains makes its way down to the ocean.

Here in Wales it's been the wettest May since records began.
This is a view of the flooded fields around Dryslwyn Castle overlooking what is normally a narrow River Towy running from extreme left of shot into the far distance.

Ruisseau du Cheylard- - Le Cheylard l’Evèque - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D5-04 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The name of this waterway is translated [Google Translate] as the Creek of Cheylard. I captured it at the point where the Departmental Road D71 crosses the Ruisseau du Cheylard just prior to entering the village.

Took an excursion yesterday to Koblenz from Bonn (I'm in Germany for work). Koblenz owes its name to the meeting point of the Rhine and the Moselle - from “Castellum apud Confluentes”, Latin for “fort at the confluence”, which over time was shortened to Koblenz. Where the two rivers meet, there is the Deutsches Eck ("German Corner”) featuring a huge monument honoring Kaiser Wilhelm. Across the river is the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress that overlooks the town of Koblenz. I took the cable car system over to tour the castle and take in the view as well.

View of Deutsches Eck from Ehrenbreitstein Fortress (Rhine lower, Moselle flowing down to meet Rhine).
