Summer in November – time to soak up the sun

How about taking a walk wearing sandals in the middle of November? And no, we are not in California or Florida, or some Caribbean spot where the weather is nice all year long…This is the story of a beautiful warm day in Biarritz, France, where normally, the month of November is quite windy and rainy. But on this particular Friday, it felt like summer.

Although we didn’t have anything planned for the day, we took advantage of our afternoon off and took our son for a stroll in Biarritz. To my delight, the town was in full motion: smiling people-dressed in summer clothes, surfers, ice cream places roaring… The restaurants and cafés were full and the dynamism of the day instantly put us in a nice, relaxed mood. I had an overall feeling of wellness and became immersed into the positive energy of the people around me.

We joined the crowds and had a great late lunch with a view at Le Surfing. Everybody enjoyed their meal, the music, the service… I absolutely loved the decor and looking forward to returning…

So here I am today, on a typical November day (rainy and windy), reminiscing about this spontaneous outing from a few days ago… In the end, this is life: there are beautiful days when you just have to let your face soak up the sun and take it all in…and less beautiful days, when you can return to the memories and use up some of that positive energy to pick you up.

  1. What a beautiful place!
    There are many constructions by the same people of the Eiffel tower. It is nice to catch an eye on them. Particularly if you find similarities and then discover they were the same people.
