The sun is shining, its my last full day, so I decide to make the most of it and head to the beach.
Im going to try somewhere new Plage de le Mine d’Or which is near Penestin.
I take the curvy route down, sharing it part of the way with a cycling event.
I arrive at Pensestin at lunch time, the restaurants in the centre are very busy but I spot one on the edge of town which had free tables.
I park up, a little too close to the pot plants for the owners liking!
The Moules Frites are delicious.
After lunch I ride to the beach.
The carpark is quite small for what is meant to be a popular beach.
As I walk down the concrete slope to the sea it looks like it is high tide and that there will be no beach to sit on, but how wrong am I?
What a gorgeous beach.
With the added interest of paragliders flying above.
I sit myself down for a bit of sunbathing. An old lady coming back from a swim is very interested in my blow up wedge
The beach is huge, and fairly empty so why does this family have to set up just 6ft from me?
The sea is lovely. A few odd stones on the seaedge but otherwise sandy.
I stay on the beach for a good few hours listening to downloaded Radio 4 dramas on my headphones.
Time to head back, as I still need to pack as its an early start tomorrow.
I take a more direct route back via Questermbert- still an enjoyable ride. I have to keep an eye on my speed as its so easy to end up riding much too fast.
I am feeling super chilled after my afternoon on the beach – a fab way to end my holiday.
