Hi Steve
All of the photos are made within the Mediterranean Sea. The Pyrenees meet the sea and this is where the photos are taken. Collioure is one city which is shown the most but others are just along the sea.

The Spanish border is very close to all of the photos. The nearest airport/larger city is Perpignan. Girona, across the border in Spain has a good airport connection. Ryan Air flies into both airports, for cheap flights.

There's a cold wind around that area though. This brings this cold winter days but this blows away the clouds, so the sun shines most days.

This area is part of the Catalonia region. Catalonia covers across the Spanish and French border area. Lots of people still speak Catalan but mostly it's mixed French and Spanish. There's not much industry but the place is full of fruits. Peaches, Nectarines, Almonds, Kiwi, grapes, cherries, and others are growned here.

There's a large mountain is some of the photos. This is called "Canigou" and it's about 10,000 feet high. This is sacred for the Catalonias. In most of the photos had my Labs swimming, etc.. The beaches from the Spanish border are made with "Galets", which is small stones. Where Argeles is shown, the galet changes and it's a beautiful sand for a long section across the French coast.

There's a lot of mussels and oysters farmed along the coast too. Yummm! It's cheap and fresh.

Like I said, it's my heaven.
