|The view I remember|
We began our walk from the hamlet of Le Racou which is
|Lone house on the Sentier du Littoral|
There are two coastal routes from Le Racou to Collioure,
Camping Les Amandiers, and had no problem with walking the steep down and uphill into Collioure town. Previously we had driven as close as we could get and really struggled to get back to our car. (We were so much older then, we're younger than that now!)
My main image memory of Collioure was the view through
|Sculpture by Francesca Caruana|
Sheltering under a conveniently empty marquee, we decided to head back to Le Racou rather than wander around Collioure first. I did see a good mix of independent arty and touristy shops as we passed as well as lots of restaurants. Despite the greyness, Collioure was busy with practically everywhere open for business. This was a contrast to Le Racou where most businesses, other than a couple of the cafes, were closed.
