A recent trip to France took me to the Gironde Estuary where more than 400 fishing huts add to the picturesque landscape. The Gironde is a navigable estuary (often falsely referred to as a river), in southwest France, formed from the meeting of the rivers Dordogne and Garonne.

Wooden huts built on stilts, with a square-shaped pulley-operated net or ‘filet carré’, which has given the humble shacks their name ‘carrelets’.
