The semaphore station at Cape Bear, South of France


It is spring in South of France. It is flowers, birds and smells as you walk the cliffs along Cote Vermeille and passes this Semaphore station at Cap Bear with officers on duty 24/7.

The Cap Béar semaphore built in 1861, belongs to the French National Navy and is used to control the sea traffic and to establish weather forecasts.
