Plage Grand Crohot at sundown

(Click photos for a larger view)

These were all taken between 9 and 10 pm on Father's Day. We all went for a swim when we first got there...the water is warm again. The kids are learning how to enjoy being taken for a ride by the surf.

We nearly had the beach to ourselves. There was one other family down a ways. Two kids played with bright blue ball that when it sailed up into the air caught the sunlight. Click on the photo to see it.

The sky was really putting on a display. Every direction you looked something surreal going on.

Once while staring off into a bank of clouds to the west over the water I glimpsed a lightning bolt striking the was so far away I doubted my own eyes...certainly no thunder made it this far.

A little later though Beth and I saw another one. Where we were the air was warm and soft, no breeze. Later on around midnight as we laid in bed, the rains came first gently then in sheets. It's rained most of May but this rain couldn't dampen the feeling that the beau temps has finally arrived.

Gorgeous! Cool, too, that you got to see lightning hit the ocean!
