St Martin Del Ré

We managed to stay only two days on Île de Ré before it was time to head north to Calais.  On our second day we cycled to St Martin Del Ré, the largest town on the island.  The town was surrounded by ancient fortifications, complete with a grassy moat with four stone entry gates.  We stopped for lunch at the port before cycling on to La Flotte.
