Moliets again

Since I started this blog, I think we've been to Moliets on the Atlantic coast three or four times. It's a great seaside resort, perfect for a quick getaway with kilometres and kilometres of pristine sandy beaches, pine forests criss-crossed with walking and cycling paths, a few laid-back bars and restaurants, and a golf course, le Courant d'Huchet and even cypress knees. Oh, and villas with pools available for a tiny fraction of the extortionate high-season rate if you can go in springtime.
Actually the only thing we wanted but didn't get was perfect weather all the time, it was only hot and sunny about half the time, which isn't really so bad.

Really, you put together the best photo-mosaics! Perhaps because you take such gorgeous photos . . . this looks like the perfect spot for a family getaway.

Love all the piney greens in that. I remember seeing red squirrels in those pine trees, years ago. ( I think that was at Biscarrosse?)

Hi Lesley,

Regina here, for ExpatWomen.com.

I would like to personally invite you to list your blog on our Expat Women Blog Directory (www.expatwomen.com/expatblog/) so that other women can read about and learn from your expat experiences.

Many thanks in advance for your contribution and keep up your great blog!

Never been to Moliets ... I'll give it a go sometime!

an Expat Women's group sounds just as dire as 'Women' writers etc

Can't somehow visualise you as either an 'expat' or a 'woman' ... just my friend, the witty writer Lesley!

Thanks for the photo compliments - it all seems such a long time ago now and a different season. We seem to have slipped back from Spring into Autumn.

Deborah - I certainly don't think of myself as expat either!


Being confined indoors most of the day, just the four of us, is reminding me of the days when my children were wee and most of our weekends ...
