Fort Picolet, a tourist attraction

The past regimental glory that was Fort Picolet has given way to a ruin that serves mainly as a tourist attraction and also moonlights as a residence for squatters. Gaining access to the ruined fort includes a trek across a littered beach which leads to a rocky promontory, upon which the tumbledown fort now sits. Inside, a row of cannons, more fallen down than are standing, give eerie spectacle of the vagaries of time over once mighty vestiges of power.
