If you read my Alternative Christmas post yesterday then you know that Sexy Hubby and I travelled to the South of France for a week.
We love the gorgeous, sandy beach in Gruissan. In the summer it is of course rather full of fellow holiday-makers, although there is so much space that it never feels overcrowded.
But in the winter… It is simply magical. We did meet the odd couple or family enjoying a walk too but mostly, we had the beach to ourselves. We could take Cute Doggy with us for long, exhilarating walks in the sun, letting him off the lead. He ran so much, ears flapping in the wind, that he fell asleep immediately every time upon our return.
A few weeks before our arrival, the region was hit by very bad weather that resulted in floods. Everything was back to normal when we were there but the traces of the storms were still clearly visible, with lots of driftwood, sometimes whole trees, scattered around the beach.
