The Bassin d'Arcachon

The west coast of this presque isle, part of the Cote d'Argent looks out onto the Atlantic; it features beautiful sandy beaches extending north for miles and miles. The waves there attract surfers from all's kind of like Baywatch in some places. The water can be quite dangerous for little ones if left alone.

Petit Piquet

Sailboats slip around the Cap and moor on the east shore which looks onto the Bassin d'Arcachon. Here waterfront homes and cafes nestle low right up to the high water mark. Everyday the water drains away at low tide exposing oyster beds and leaving boots tilting on the wet sand.

Just wanted you to know that all the information and pic's were great! I'm thinking seriously about getting some French language tapes - the kiss I can do. Love, Mere
