    Find 10 mistakes in this text.
    The breeding of sheep and lambs on the salt marsh contributes to the landcape and ecological identity of the Bay of the Somme. The salt marshes are covered by the sea for at least 50 days a year, which leads to the development of vegetation appreciated by the sheeps. These vast salt marshes provide a tastea and high quality grass, loaded with iodine and salt. It is this unique vegetation that gives salt maedow lamb its very fine grain, its pinkish colour and its exceptional flavour combining iodine, flora and hazenut.

    The region is identified by its typical seaside towns : Le Crotoy with, on the other side of the bay, Saint-Valérie sur Somme with its ramparts testifing to its medieval history, Cayeux which has been christened : the peble capital of the world and Ault which marks the birth of the laimestone cliffs which extend over 140 km to Le Havre. At the beginning of the 20th century, the first railways reduced the distances and brought Paris closer to Le Tréport. Mers, sister town of Le Tréport, has kept all its authenticitea and its cachet of the sea-bathing period, with its Belle Époque and Art Nouveau villas which line up along the esplanade, facing the beach. A magnificently preserved seafront, which has been classified as a protected sector.

    With telecommuting during Covid health periods and global warming, this negleted region is experiencing a resurgence in popularity.
