Cap Ferret

On spec, we got on a bus in Andernos this afternoon. After much confusion with the language barrier we found ourselves taking an hour long trip to Cap Ferret. Hired a cycle for an hour and then came back.

Cap Ferret

These poles remind me of those Antony Gormley statues - see below.

The farthest point of the cape and the Atlantic.

Looking across to the Dune of  Pyla - where we are going on Wednesday for a week.

Typical wooden building on Cap Ferret

The modern church.

With spectacular stained glass window,
Antony Gormley statues at Crosby Beach.
Last night's dinner:

Kir Cassis to start

Salade Landaise with what looked like the testicles of some animal.

Duck leg and chips.

Custard and whipped egg white.

Walk along the beach afterwards.
Drumming practice update:

Practised with the drum-pad on our terrace this morning.

Drumming to a rainbow.

The necessary mug of tea for company..

The pad.
Later in the day the wind was up so I risked the actual drum - the wind smothered the sound.


The breakfast area plus cat.

Quite a spread.

Then Mass at the nearby church:

St Eloi, Andernos-Les-Bains

Not a seat to be had - stood for the hour.



More views of our hippy hotel.

The proprietress is a bit of an artist.

The grounds.
