Photographer's Note

It's summer time and it's hot (anyway, in the south of France)... so I wanted to come back in picture to a place I like very much on the Aude coastal, the huts of the Ayrolle pond.

The Ayrolle pond is located on the Gruissan town (Languedoc-Roussillon, Aude), in the south of the village. It's in the earth of the Natural regional parc of the Narbonnaise.
1320 ha of superficy, it's suplied with water by channels wich link it to the others ponds of the Aude coast.
Rich of its fish fauna, there is still an active fishing here. So that, we can see some huts around a little port.
This is a particular place, far from traffic, isolated and peaceful.

This little place of fishermen still counts about twenty wooden houses. Most of them are now holiday homes for week-end fishermen on the pond.
A lot are in bad condition : big wind, sand and salt aren't strangers to that.


to see my others pictures of this place on TE :
