Rivedoux

We have been walking around exploring today, and we are staying in a cute little town called Rivedoux.
Rivedoux is the entry point to the Ile de Re and the bridge from the mainland divides the north and south beaches.
The southern side faces the Atlantic Ocean and today there was a really strong wind that whipped up the waves.
By contrast, the northern beach is very sheltered and this is where we are camped. 'Our' beach is calm and when the tide goes out there are lots metal rails on the beach that I think are for growing oysters, mussels or maybe both.
Unfortunately, I am not an adventurous eater, so even though oysters are on the menu at the local restaurants, I just can't imagine myself trying them.
