Carolles, Normandy. A beach much associated with my childhood. We spent many summers in Normandy, and often frequented the beach at Carolles and neighbouring Jullouville. In summer the area is teeming with holiday makers, cars and camper vans. When the tide is out, there is a long walk across the sand to reach the water, but when the tide is in, as it was today, it's got a delightful energy. Carolles beach has some nice se of caves further down, with rocky outcroppings. There's a lot to like here.
Broome, delivering on all fronts.
Broome is a town that just keeps on giving. Abnormally high and low tides reveal some fascinating glimpses rarely seen. This includes wrecks from World War II - seaplanes that were destroyed by the Japanese. The wreckage is only visible at very low times - just a few times each year - so I was fortunate to get the chance to wade out across the mud plains to see them.

Sea plane wreckage
I love that some parts are still identifiable, like the screws and bolts
I love the colour of the Ocean here
Muddy plains - walking out to the seaplane wreckage is a bit of trek, made harder by the mud.
The plains are teeming with little sea creatures, like this Star Trek like creature
Love how encrusted this crab's shell is
High water mark for the Blackwood. It earned its name this evening.
