Last weekend was 34 degrees celsius here in Bordeaux. It was really hot here so hubby and I decided to go at the beach. At first, we were kinda confused if we go at Lacanu or Le Porge. We went in Lacanu once and I can say that it is like hollywood there. It is a very crowded place but normal because it is a place where surfers go and there are many different kinds of cafes and restaurants there too. We knew that it would be very difficult for us to find a place for parking there so we decided finally to go in Le Porge.
Le Porge is on the South West of France on the Atlantic coast coast between the Medoc and the Arcachon Basin. I can say that it is less crowded there. There are restaurants there too and camping site. We left home at around 4 in the afternoon thinking that it would be less crowded by that time as it is late in the afternoon already. But we were completely wrong. Traffic was incredible. When we were finally there, it was even very difficult for us to park the car. Not only us had such kind of problem but everyone. It is like a fiesta here in France when it's warm. People take advantage of the weather by going at the beach, going at the park with their family or kids, jogging, riding a bicycle and going at the cafe. It is really unbelievable. Take note, never I see anyone here using umbrella when weather is warm hehehehe. Well, they like to have tan skin you know;-)
Hubby did body surf and I did my 2nd bath at the ocean. Oh yes sisters, 2nd bath at the ocean. I love the freshness of the water when it is really hot like that. I never had the courage to try body surf as I am shy. But to do sunbathing isn't bad at all huh!
But anyways, here are some of the photos. Click it to enlarge.
People at the beach. Do you see anyone half naked? Shhhhh
Heavy traffic outside Le Porge. People waiting their turns to go inside the property but unfortunately, there was no vacant parking. Ouff!
I would like to try this kind of activity. Cute no?
