I’m sure it something to do with the uninterrupted view to the horizon (except maybe the clouds to add drama), but this stretch of coast is capable of producing some stunning sunsets. We found a spot to park after deciding that the nearby Aire was too in the woods, and were intending to carry on futher, but stumbled across a few other vans in what appears to be the parking area of the town footy ground. They all seemed set for the night, and no obvious prohibition of overnight camping, so we decided to stop here and take in the sunset.
Some lovely rollers coming in off the Atlantic, spray leaping up but some distance from the beach, but drama nonetheless. Mr Holmes was right in his text to me yesterday, there would be some great surfing down this bit of coast.
I think we’ve now decided to stick with the coast as far as Biarritz as the weather looks fine for the remainder of the week. Tomorrow we may well see if we can relocate to a campsite with services for at least a couple of days, and see if we can soak up some rays. I think I managed to catch the sun today wandering around on that dune – must have been the altitude!
