SOL: La Plage

SOL: La Mer

Wednesday was a good day at Mas Al Quinta!

Namua asked me to go to the market with her, so I was up bright and early at 6:30 heading to a neighboring city.

She sells English books to tourists and such, so after a quick set-up I was free to wander about the city on my own.

After purchasing a fresh croissant, basically contraband in our vegan household, I set out for a 20 minute walk to the beach. It was a much cleaner city than Perpignan, and the sun was already up and shining full force.

I got to the beach just after 8am and loved it! The sea is hugged on one side by the mountains, and if you face the north you can still see the snow-topped Pyrenees.

I played around the the beach for two hours, sadly the water was too cold to wade in.

After returning to the city I found the centre square and streets were full of vendors for the market! There was tons of fresh produce, jewelry, meat and clothes to meander through.

By noon it was 30 degrees and I was sweating bullets in my black jeans. Luckily we started packing up by 12:30 and were home just after 1pm. Once we got back it was decided that we would take another trip to the beach, so we all piled into a car and drove to a more secluded corner to relax and siesta.

Two beach trips in one day and I got a bit of sun – successful day in France.

À bientôt,
