A short break

This past weekend we decided to take a break from all the renovations and headed off to spend a weekend at the beach.

We are very lucky in that my inlaws live in La Teste on the Bassin d'Arcachon so we took over their house for the weekend and just relaxed and enjoyed some sun, sand and sea.

On Saturday we went to one of my favorite beaches in the area, Le Petit Nice, and on Sunday we went to the Lac de Cazaux so we could take advantage of the shade provided by the trees that surround the lake since it was a whopping 36° Celsius (about 97 Fahrenheit).

It was a perfect, relaxing weekend and just what we needed to get away from some of the renovation stress!


  1. Looks lovely!! Le Bassin d'Arcachon is one of the places in France I want to visit the most (to see the dune as well). I'm not sure I'd like to go in summer though because I hate the heat!

    1. Just another reason to visit the Bordeaux area then :) The Bassin d'Arcachon is lovely though. It has become one of my favorite areas in France. The dune is incredible and I love visiting the little oyster ports all along the Bassin.

    1. Lol, like you're one to talk! You're in Florida, you can go to the beach whenever you want and it's even closer for you! :)
