the sand bridge

Here's a wider view of what I was describing yesterday.  One can now walk from the Ile d'Or on the right to this smaller island on the left across this bridge of sand.  Normally, it would be under the Loire.  Surprisingly, these little yellow flowers don't seem to mind the heat and dryness.


  1. The little yellow flowers are an invasive alien. It would be nice if the dry weather did slow them down, otherwise they have the potential to clog the river.

  2. it's hard to imagine such a water loss.
