Biking to the Point de Le Hourdel via la route Blanche
Le Hourdel is a tiny village at the south cap of the Somme Bay: 2 streets wide boasting 1 fish restaurant, 1 pub and a lighthouse.
The cap has a pebble hill that forms the point between the Channel and the Somme river coming into the sea. The Bay is 5 km wide at this point and falls except for a water channel almost completely dry with sandbanks (and sleeping seals) at low tide and is a vast amount of water at high tide.
All of this was only a 4km bike ride away along the lovely bike route "la route Blanche" from our little house. I explored the trip once on my own and we repeated it later on with the entire family.
