Safe in Sand

The port of Les Sables opens to three branches of inland ports: the fisheries, the naval docks, and the pleasure docks.  All boats come through this channel, protected by levies and light houses on either side.  The fort, here to the right, has stood and fallen to many causes, but has also served as a monastery, as its current name Prieurée Saint Nicolas suggests.  Given that trough time it's been royalist or republican, catholic or protestant, Free French or Third Reich, I'm sure that at heated moments a lot of soldiers did some praying there too.
