The Great Dune of Pilat

Yesterday I was inspired to get back into writing the blog. I guess it is pretty fair that since I am exploring and seeing many beautiful things that I share what i can.
In my opinion words and even photos can never fully do real life experiences justice but they can definitely go a long way. 

Let's go back to the end of august:

The great dune of Pilat:
The tallest sand dune in Europe

Located in the south west of France  close to bordeaux, this sand dune actually took my breath away. We were driving on the highway and out of nowhere emerged this enormous wall of sand. I was really not expecting it to be so grand. It towers over the adjacent shoreline. Because of terrible traffic we only spent a few hours there but that was all I needed to be humbled by it's physical presence. I would highly recommend visiting the dune if you are ever in the area! Give yourself at least a day or make a weekend out of it. There is lots of camping along the dune but I would book ahead since it is a popular place. 

I'm having a bit of difficulty adding photos... Will work on that!
