Les Landes.



We visited Les Landes - a region of France that Xavier cited the first time we went to Cape Cod - the wide, white sanded beaches bringing him back to that region. It is a hushed region - even in the first week of July. It was cold and the clouds portended squall, but they brought beauty and complexity to the beach we stood on (almost companionless). Bizarre pine trees were penciled onto every horizon - their trunks totally bare - their branches all accumulated at the top. Marguerite was blithesome - running everywhere, crowing with the rhythm of the waves. Colette was very serious - the wind must have stunned (or inspired) her.

Summer looks so tempting. We are right on the most beautiful beaches, but it's just to chilly for me. I savored these photos.

Ah les Landes... !!! Des plages aux cieux tourmentés, des vagues à faire peur (l'Atlantique n'est pas toujours calme). Si jamais vous repassez (dans quelques années) par là-bas, n'oubliez pas de vous rendre sur la dune de Pyla. Un monument historique à ne pas manquer. Un souvenir cher à mon cœur car l'un des derniers souvenirs en compagnie des enfants et de Serge.
