CITY OF LA ROCHELLE, FRANCE.

Atlantic coast.

--I moved on from Vannes France, by train to lovely La Rochelle,taking about
one hour. I stayed two nights in a 2*hotel . The first day the weather was cloudy but
fine, second day nice and sunny. --- The feature of La Rochelle ,is the towers had guard the harbour, in olden days,a chain was stretched
across two of the towers at night. A 3rd tower was a look out tower. --Many little yachts. -- I found the German Bunker museum very interesting, its is in the centre of town. Built in 1941 in WW2 for HQ of U-boat officers.--- There is a
Maritime Museum on a ship.LA  ROCHELLE,  FRANCE --  Stayed  2 nights  at  this  hotel.in  Rue  de la  Fabrique.   /
