My wife, Nelly, is from a village on the Atlantic island Île de Ré, which is connected to France by bridge at La Rochelle.  My family has visited la tour des baleines, and climbed it a few times. 

La Tour Des Baleines In Misses Halliday’s community, A lighthouse steadily illuminates That coastal location. Containerships Can safely navigate. Supertankers Can avoid incidents. Superliners Can protect passengers unfailingly. This noble edifice, designated, (From francais translated): “Tower-Of-Whales”. Mark Halliday Contest: Lighthouse 19 September 2014

I did too. It was hard to not sound forced, contrived, or wooden. Thanks.

Thanks Dr. M. Liked yours too. That was hard to do without sounding overly contrived. La Tour des Beleines is real. I've climbed it a few times while visiting In-Laws.
