Friday is a sunny day so I pick the girls from school and we head straight off to the beach. The girls get to have their first go at body boarding – but as the water is a tad on the cold side they find it difficult to achieve while avoiding the water! Everyone makes good progress, and I am by far the wettest. On our way back to the house we notice that there is some slightly unusual activity, people are busy setting up a catering tent and there are lots of vans around. On enquiring we discover that tomorrow there is a Sandball (handball on sand) tournament. And in the evening there is a free apero with boulot (sea snails). We shall be back tomorrow to have a look!
