I couldn’t take a full day off today, so after an early start and interesting conversation with Guillaume about how people are cremated – (there was a bonfire at the cemetery) we were on the beach by 8:30am.
The beach was deserted and the water as flat as a millpond. Flo and I were tempted to go and install ourselves on the sunbeds of the hotel just next door, but these are technically reserved for guests so in the end we settled ourselves on the sand between the huge red rocks. As the temperature was already nearly 30 degrees by 10am, it wasn’t long until we were tempted into the water.
This stretch of beach is superb because although the rocks are really picturesque, there are very few in the sea, so you can swim out a long way and still see what’s swimming with you. I saw two big fish that I thought would have been delicious if we’d had the net with us!
