To explore France’s Somme bay on Picardy’s north coast, it’s best to venture out at low tide. The vast estuary of the River Somme reveals an archipelago of sandbars and salt marshes: a paradise for migratory birds, but also for shepherds. On a canoe trip, visitors can get up close and personal with the stars of the bay: the seals. The largest seal colony in France has settled here, which is an eye-opener for tourists.
