a summery slice of life – the Atlantic coast of France

In August 2013 I went to Arcachon, a favourite seaside destination of mine. It’s located just south of Bordeaux on the Atlantic Coast. France is blessed with three marvellous coastlines: the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and the English Channel.

Here’s a two-minute video of the jetty which stretches out over Arcachon Bay.  Just beyond is the island of Cap Ferret.  I can smell that fresh, ocean air and hear the gulls wheeling overhead right now. (I apologize for the amateurish video, I had just purchased that camera and was still figuring it out.)

Below is a post with photos of Arcachon and Cap Ferret, as well as a good hotel recommendation.
