Happy 4th of July & Cap Ferret

Happy 4th of July - Enjoy your weekend
Just a quick post this morning to wish all my American readers a Happy 4th of July.  I hope everyone is able to enjoy it and spend it with family and friends.  Additional thoughts going out to military men and women who continue to protect the Free world. Their dedication is truly at the heart of what who we are as Americans.  
 In France, their Independence day is July 14th, but being American and having children who have grown up enjoying time with family and friends for the 4th of July.  We like to celebrate it in some way.  What is lucky about living in a community where we have Americans friends. This year we are headed to Cap Ferret to celebrate. 
 It will be a tradition afternoon barbecue filled with games, fun and of course swimming.  What is lovely about Cap Ferret is that there is a choice of swimming on the Bassin side or on the ocean.  Either choice is  makes for a lovely time and it's such a picturesque setting.
 So as I prepare for our departure for the day - I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few photos of Cap Ferret with everyone.  It's a beautiful - natural spot and so perfect for a hot summer day!
These photos were taken last August - this area is so natural, still a bit wild and I'm definitely looking forward to spending our afternoon there. After of week of being in some of the hottest weather that France has experienced - it will be nice to cool off! It's similar to Cape Cod in Massachusetts - you need to get an early start to avoid the masses of traffic heading out there. 
 So Happy 4th of July for those of you who are celebrating!  Enjoy your day and here' s to toasting Independence and Freedom!  Bon Weekend!


  1. What a beautiful place to spend the 4th of July! Went to Arcachon last September and just got a glimpse of Cap Ferret from the other side of the bassin when climbing up the Dune of Pyla. Absolutely one of the places I would like to see in my life! Enjoy your time with friends and family! Britta from Germany

    1. Thank you Britta for your commenting. Always nice to hear from readers. The Arcachon Bassin is definitely a jewel! Cap Ferret is very natural and a wonderful place to just enjoy the sea. Hope you are having a lovely weekend too!
