Beach life in Moliets

With a weather forecast saying 31 degrees, going to the beach was a no-brainer! Our favourite beach Moliets was terribly crowded... not! I'm joking! Such a luxury to have that wast space almost to ourselves... Clara brought a friend and we had such a good time playing in the water and feeling the warm breeze...

Heaps of soft white sand....


Lots of work....




Let's check the water!

Ouf! Chilly!

The joy of SAND (Messanges)

My children are getting bigger but they still love the beach for all the sand..... we go there for the sea of course, but many times they spend a lot of time playing in the sand, running on the beach, looking for little stones all soft, making sand castles.....

This time we went to Messanges and joy above all joy, they had taken away the last part of the stairs down to the beach (probably to replace it) so there was a steep slope they could run down... and up... and down...

Summer officially declared



First dip in the pool! For all of us, including the not so daring mother...

And dinner outside, half naked and wet hair.... sweet.




Lovely walk around the lake in Vieux Boucau



We've been here before but it really is a lovely walk around Port d'Albret, the lake in Vieux Boucau. This place is very much a family place with bikes and kids all over. This was last Sunday, a sunny and warm day. Perfect for a little picnic.

We started out clockwise from the left, followed the bike path up til the miniboat harbour, longing the lake up til the sea and heading back on the wooden lane. The effort was worth an icecream!

Behind the dunes, the sea






Icecream!

Climbing mamas in Moliets



Adrenaline Parc in Moliets was our next activity stop during the weekend. Lots of fun too! Perfect with different levels of difficulty so that everybody could find their own adrenaline level.... I managed up to level 5, but two brave ones made the level 8... by then I was more than happy to stay below and watch....

Surfing mamas in Hendaye



Some Swedish friends visited this weekend. They tried a bit of surfing on the Hendaye beach with legendary Christophe Reinhardt as their surf instructor. I think it shows how much fun they had!
