Since the tides are so intense here, there is a huge industry of mussel farming. We even saw some people eating big pots of them in the restaurant. I found a really awesome pink scallop shell on the beach that I'm of course bringing home. As we walked along the beach toward the Cemetery, we saw some people riding their horses on ...
