EUROCAMP: A Long Weekend On The French Atlantic Coast - Day 3 More Surfing And Hossegor


I was awake early as usual!

About 7.45am I went to the Spar to get a loaf of bread as we had somehow managed to leave the one we picked up at the end of the till ...



We are in the red zone - the campsite is enormous and it is easy to get disorientated!



I was early getting to the Spar. The bar wasn't open yet so no coffee to be had!

Breakfast was grilled cheese for DD and scrambled egg on toast for the rest of us!



It was getting very hot - yesterday it had got up to 36C which is way too hot for me ( that is why we like our summer holidays in Canada - where we live it can be that hot for weeks on end! )

I walked with the rest of the family to the beach but decided that I would go back as I knew even at 10am I would frizzle! Even with 50+ suncream!

I did manage a nap though



After a pasta lunch we drove 30 minutes to Hossegor - a surf shop paradise!

J got a super hoodie in SuperDry and F a dress in Roxy!



Ice creams and smoothies may have been had



We called into the local supermarket (a lot cheaper! ) - pizzas were acquired as well as drinks and snacks! Hungry work this surfing!

After dinner, we made the walk back to the beach. It is quite a hike and not flat! This was about half way there - and we were lucky as we were in the bit nearest to it!



The waves were high and, according to the surf guru (aka J! ) not very rideable! Thus picture doesn't do them justice!



O decided to mess around near the shore! He is the one lying down!



While F flew her kite for the first time - quite successfully!



They all ventured out with the body boards but some bought them back as it was difficult to catch a wave. Instead they just messed around.



The sky got darker and it noticeably cooled down. We decided to head back.



The wind started picking up and we decided a storm was brewing.

We packed as much away on the terrace and sure enough it started to rumble.

As I am writing this it is raining and there is lots of thunder - glad we are not in a tent...

It was a walk to the beach - along a lot of the coast it is like that! Very pretty though
