The beach at Soulac-sur-Mer
In front of us were a couple more bars at the top of the beach accessed down a simple path of wooden boards.
The sun was shining and the wind had dropped – what a beautiful day!
We sat and watched the sea and regretted not knowing that we would be on a beach after leaving the ship.
I could see a stone breakwater along the beach and I walked to see it more closely.
Walking back up the Rue de la Plage
We stopped at the first cafe for a drink after we left the beach. Clearly Soulac-sur-Mer is an upmarket resort (or thinks it is) as the drink prices reached the dizzy heights of Paris.
On the way back up the Rue-de-la-Plage I bought a new wind chime for 7 Euros – a bargain compared to the prices in the other shops.
We walked through the covered market to visit the SPAR supermarket that we had seen. We stocked up on Diet Cokes and tonic water (plus some chocolate of course) for the rest of the cruise.
Past one of the small squares off from the street I went to have a look at Soulac-sure-Mer’s town hall.
In the small square was a crepe stall. We couldn’t resist buying some crepes. The stall had a meter long hot plate for making the crepes and as expected they were delicious too.
