Atlantic Wall Beach Bunker
We went back to La Torche today to meet up with some neighbours, who were camping in the area for their holidays. I managed to slip away for an hour or so to walk along the beach and have a look at one of the command bunkers that are slowly slipping into the sea.
It reminded me of the bunkers that in saw in Jutland many years ago, which were also being stranded out to sea by the retreating sand dunes. I'm not sure the funky grafitti and groovy surf sculptures were quite what OKW High Command expected but at least someone appreciates a bit of Atlantic Wall concrete, if only as a blank canvas?
