Vieux Boucau-les-Bains

Today is not the day to write long blogs. The weather is as predicted: les Bains weather. So I'll just show you a few pictures I took on the beach this morning. On the horizon of the first one (click to enlarge) you can see the mountains on the coast of northern Spain. As the crow flies that is about 80 kilometers from here.
Compared to yesterday the waves were a little stronger this morning. Apparently there was also a strong current as three people had to be saved! All three had to be carried to hospital.
I am sure the beaches in Holland are no different but each and every time we are here we are amazed by all the rubbish that is washed ashore. In particular all these plastic nets and lines. I assume it is all thrown overboard. A big thank you to all the shipping lines seems to be in place.. There should be an OEA, an Ocean Environmental Authority!
The last one gives a nice overview of the beach. It is taken from the place where we had lunch. By that time the temperature must have been close to 30 degrees Centigrade. Which is an as good excuse as any to have a pichet of rosé.

Oh my, yes storms, especially those unexpected ones can be so dangerous. Hopefully they will be okay. Nice colorful photos. Enjoy your day!
