A photo album of my Christmas

Bows and wrapping FranceFrench Ruinart Champagne French beach in winter So we are all at the beachouse for a few days. It's marvellous to be down here, it's so warm at the moment.

A cool hotel with style in Hossegor. Ocean weekend anyone?

Hossegor 202 Hotel Honestly, I don't normally talk about hotels. Because I don't normally go and stay in them unless I am travelling abroad. However, a few friends of mine went to stay at the new Hossegor 202 Hotel and I think it rocks. Read on...

Clean the beaches – save our waters

Clark Little Calif Water. We are made of it. We need it for LIFE. It is source of beauty and energy. We are all drawn to it, one way or another. When I go to my local beach here, named "La Pointe" to surf or just to dive into the ocean, it often makes me sad to see the state of the beach. The sand is litterally LITTERED with every item of rubbish you can imagine: from the sadly standard plastic bottles and bags, tin cans, jericans to all sorts of horrible items like scissors, rusty nails on an old metal board, an oven (yes, an oven) and the rest. Other beaches around my beachouse (Estagnots, La Nord, Estacades...) are really clean but that's because they are racked over every morning! Why are our beaches dirty? Often because the oceans and seas are really dirty too. From coastal waste dumped into the waters from all our coasts over the world, to cargos and ships that unload their rubbish to individuals on the beach that just leave their rubbish on the sand. So I joined the Surfrider Foundation a few years back. The Facebook pages for your areas are available, please go and have a look, like, join and do your best to try and make our waters and beaches clean. They organise beach cleans but also events to raise awareness to protect our waters and many other initiatives to stop any hostile project from hurting our coasts. The aquatic ecosystem is vast. Who gave us the right to take over the water or even the world for that matter? I am pationate about trying to keep our natural ecosystems alive and intact. The water covers most of our planet. We are mostly made of water. It is a strong and versatile element that demands respect. So let's give it! www.surfrider.eu Estagnots beachPlastic bottle sculpture - Surfrider Foundation Sud Landes Read on...

Views – Capbreton in the morning

Today is hot. Like melting hot. This morning I decided to go walk in the ocean in Capbreton. These are some shots of the port, I LOVE the old rusted look of the signal lights. Capbreton is a small little town of about 7500 inhabitants (triple that I guess during the summer) in the Landes departement (number 40 on our number plates). The beaches are beautiful, great for surfing but also for strolling forever. You can either stay at a camping site, hotel or deluxe resort here. You have it all. Sometimes it gets hot, like really hot but the advantage is that the Atlantic works it's magic and brings us a little storm to clear the extreme heat. For me that's perfect. Enjoy the pics below and don't hesitate to mail or contact me on FB for any questions about here!!! xxx Capbretonoceansignal lights Read on...
