Galets means pebbles.
I live in Alsace, France, nearby the river Rhine, which marks the border between France, Germany and Switzerland, and is a daily sight for our family.
Also, the Ill is the river that gives its name to Alsace. At its source, less than 20 minutes away from my home, water mixes with little rounded pebbles.
