Enjoying the view from the top of Mont Saint-Clair, Sète

Kathryn and I made a spontaneous afternoon trip to Sète yesterday, during which we climbed Mont Saint-Clair by foot. I don’t usually use the panoramic mode on my mobile phone camera, but this seemed like a good time to break that habit.

The view from about halfway up, looking over the Mediterranean Sea:

The view from the top, looking over the Thau Lagoon:

These photos may look better on a tablet or desktop. Or maybe they won’t. I haven’t checked yet.

I was quite certain there would be a café at the top of the mountain, and I was correct. It was open every day from 10 am to 7 pm — that is, every day except Wednesdays. So we walked back down and enjoyed some drinks in a café overlooking the canal, which was every bit as nice.

There are some who call Sète the “Venice of Languedoc”, but I don’t think the comparison is fair. Frankly, I’d much rather spend an afternoon in Sète.
