Dune du Pyla

So, as google says Dune du Pyla is actually the highest dune in Europe, 107m to be exact, or at least that’s what I read. This mother nature beauty took me completly by surprise, I was completely blown away by the view up there, on one side surrounded by the sea of the Arcachon Bay and on the other side a large pine forest. As you can see we had to buy some pretty ridiculous yellow “ponchos”, becuase by the time we got there it was pouring rain, we actually weren’t going to get out of the car, but we had already driven there, so we we thought we might as well do it and it actually made it super fun. We played with hula hoops and of course laughed until our stomach hurt and surfed the dunes (although actually it was a real failure, becuase the sand was so humid that the surf bords didn’t slide). And of course all the people that were there kept looking at us like we were crazy people… I can’t understand why?!
