We took the Bordeaux-Arcachon train last Saturday as far as Le Teich, and again today to Arcachon. Arcachon is 50 minutes by train from Bordeaux, with Le Teich about halfway between. We went to Le Parc Ornithologique du Teich last week and to the beach in Arcachon today.

Arcachon is a nice beach town with lots of restaurants along the beachfront. I generally prefer a more secluded beach but for a beach in the middle of a town, it's perfect. Fiacra and Ailbhe love being at the beach. We still don't have any sand toys but they don't seem to notice.
We buried Connell in the sand. There was talk of covering him completely, with just a straw sticking out for him to breathe through, but luckily there were no straws on hand.
