June is the perfect time for enjoying the delights of the beach before it starts swarming with people. Beautifully long sunny days, mild weather, the warm ocean…
EVERYBODY TO THE BEACH
Once you’ve stocked up on a few items at the market – fruit, a block of cheese, bread, a pastis landais cake – it’s time to head for the beach! By late morning, the tide has gone out. The ocean is far away, and a huge, beautiful beach of white sand is all ours. Only a few isolated parasols have been pitched here and there. Peace and quiet guaranteed.
A LITTLE PILE OF SAND UNDER YOUR HEAD
After your luxury al fresco picnic, it is time for the main attraction! The weather is mild, and this sunny day is perfect for laying out your towel on the hot sand and basking in the sunshine. The parasol is all set up, you’ve made a little pile of sand under your head and it’s time to relax, however you like to do it…some like a good novel, while others prefer a relaxing siesta in the cool and gentle breeze. Just what you need.
WALKS ON THE SEAFRONT AND BEYOND
Walking the length of this immense beach with the waves lapping at your ankles is so relaxing. The water is at a pleasant temperature, a little chilly at first but so vivifying! It’s such a good feeling – no need to turn back when you reach the horizon! The sun sets late at this time of year. Make the most of it and take your time…perhaps until pre-dinner drinks? There’s no hurry…
