Climbing the Largest Sand Dune in Europe

Arrived at the Dune du Pyla to find it is 4 euros to park the car - but free if you can make it up to the dune, climb it and back down in half an hour! On the dune itself, on the steepest side, there are steps to climb to the top. You are able to drag yourself up without the use of steps if you so wish. Good views from the top over the Landes forest and Cap de Ferret. Descended the dune to the sea and had a refreshing swim.

The Brexton Set came out for a picnic in the car park before a short drive to Arcachon Bay and the coast. Finished with a short ride on the Velo Verte path started a couple of days ago - but from the other end.
Drove to Les Remparts in Gensac. Slow getting around Bordeauxbur arrived in time for a evenning meal.
