All the boys (especially the big one) had great fun on the dunes. It is hard to get a sense from the video or photo's just how steep the leeward side of the dune is.
Downhill was great fun.. uphill was well, hard work, especially pulling a couple of 25kg sacks. Fortunately the sacks in question eventually figured this out and were able to resist the urge to "can we run down again, ah - please Dad"
My camera took a real beating from all the fine sand - I was worried I had ruined the retractable lens. It seems to be ok now.. touch wood.

The Biscuit Bunch are off to the beach today.. just as soon as we pick the kids up after school. We head due west to the motorway which will take us on a dogleg up to Bordeaux before swinging back south towards the coast.
Our destination is the famous Dune du Pyla on the Atlantic coast - here are some pictures to temp you.

You asked for an update on le mouton and here it is.
They have bulked up considerably on the ol' front lawn diet. It is interesting that they seem to prefer this paddock (i.e. left) and come right up near the pool deck or fence whenever we are around (or even the dogs). Otherwise they are still very shy though.
Not sure about my french grammar.. i.e. "les", "le" or "la". I am pretty sure that sheep are considered masculine (le mouton) even though these ones are ewes but should I write "les" (plural) or "le"?
Sean thanks for the advice and help with videos. I am now using MM-HD but plan to give Ulead a trial run.

I spotted these ladies while out cycling on the back roads. Don't they know it is hunting season?
I approached slowly to see how close I could get.. not very. This second picture was zoomed in (10x) and was taken just before they scampered.
