Le Pin Sec

How about a look at the Beaches near Naujac sur Mer? The closest one is Le Pin Sec, about 12km from our Camping ground. The Beach is littered with WW2 Bunkers built by the Germans to prevent an Allied landing. The Sands of time move these Bunkers every year.

Local Artists decorate the Bunkers turning instruments of war into Art. The majority of this work has now sunk into the Sand but the next Storm may well expose it again. "Stairway to Heaven"?

You may be Curious as to what a "CHESS BURGUER" is. So am I but somehow we risisted the temptation to find out. There are several Restaurants and Fast-food Stalls in Le Pin Sec and we decided to have Pizza instead.

Things to do in Naujac

A good way to start the day is to go for a Bike-ride. The roads around here are quite flat and there are not so many Cars on the Road. Compared to the rest of France the Medoc has quite a few Bike-paths. These run mainly along the coast and are not so well maintained. 

This is also the season for "Girolles" better known as Cantharellus cibarius.They taste great just fried in Garlic and Olive oil.

 There are other things to do in the Forest.  Any fallen tree can serve as a rocking horse.

Of course after an exhausting day searching for mushrooms and playing in the Forest there is nothing better than a refreshing dip at the Beach. This is Montelivet, some 20km from Naujac sur Mer.

Camping la Rochade

Howdy folks,

To be truthful there is not much going on but it has been a long time since my last post and my other excuse is that I wanted to try uploading a Video. Ok, that didn't work, lets try a picture.

Nina training to be a Gymnast.

So now I have to find out how and if I can insert Video. If anybody knows please save me heaps of time :-)
It's a nice day today here in the Medoc so we will go to the Beach for a swim and to take some pictures.
