|Low tide on Dec. 24th|
The weather was wild! France was (and still is) being pounded by 'Tempete Dirk,' a powerful winter storm that caused major flooding and damage to areas of northern France. Even here on the coast due west of Bordeaux, we experienced heavy rain and 50-55 mile per hour winds. The waves crashed and the sand blew, stinging my face. But I loved it!
I think Lucie liked it, too, even though her ears went blowing straight back with the wind! She waded in the water, rolled in the sand, and sniffed everything the surf had deposited along the wrack line. And she found a seahorse!
The weather improved a little during our stay. Enough so that we were able to walk on the beach each day and explore a bit in Bordeaux. More of those adventures next time...
