On this day of April, I had decided to visit the estuary of the Gironde river but as you'll notice, the weather went pretty bad North of Castelnau-de-Médoc so I decided to go South. Those who love sad landscapes won't be disappointed.

I had already toured that region :
- Arcachon
- Médoc



Leaving Bordeaux without taking the highway is a hell.




Le Haillan :


That's it, we're in Médoc with Saint-Aubin-de-Médoc :


I took a road parallel to the National Road that leads to Castelnau :










We reach Saint-Raphaël, a little hamlet lost in the forest where Pey-Berland, the Gascon hero was born ; that's also when the weather went bad.








The landscapes of Pey Berland's childhood (probably with less pinetrees) :


We already visited Castelnau in my previous Médoc thread : the weather was indeed better.




I then decided to cancel my previewed tour and headed to the sea.








Civilization ! (Brach)




We reach Carcans and its infamous pond.




The road to the sea ; that's a natural reserve.


The surroundings of the pond are desert :














Carcans-Plage (aka the seashore) :






I've always found the sea terrifying.






Let's go to the Southern pond known as Etang de Lacanau:










Lacanau :






I got lost on the half-tarred and sandy roads around Lacanau :


Dead-end :






In Saumos, I finally got a better sky : let's head South






Le Porge :


Behind me is bad weather :




With Lège begins the Bassin d'Arcachon :






Arès :










Andernos :






The interior sea (see my previous thread for more pics) :
















Taussat :




Audenge :










Biganos :




I then reached Facture that you can see on the previous threads. I headed back to Bordeaux. End of the tour.
