La Collette prom


Down the path alongside the power station, heading east, a seaside prom.

Around the corner...





.. there's a vandalised shelter below the gardens...








.. through the windows.






View (blotchy, over-processed!) to a distant slipway








The prom between Green Street slipway and the Fort d'Auvergne at Havre des Pas...





.. with a bit of a redevelopment gap.

Oh how this area used to throng with visitors :(
- expect the restaurant to close next.




Looking back at the secluded (hence vandalism-prone) corner below the Martello Tower (yes it is a genuine English design Martello like Kempt Tower)...






.. in the other direction, another corner...







.. and the final stretch to the toilets-cum-cafe featured a day or two ago here...






.. and the old cottage from the last pics, above an impressive cactus.






As we approach the slipway...








.. there's a shelter that's actually cared for.

More soon...




I still haven't heard if this coastline is at risk or not, from the plans I once heard mentioned for an emergency access road to the reclamation site and incinerator. I hope there will be howls of protest if they do try it.

So far there has only been the proverbial deafening silence.

Isn't that the walk that they are widening for the road, and knocking down shelters - so the plans say....
