More Atlantic Wall
We went to La Torche today to have a look at the surfing. I'd been there before so I was planning to check out the various pillboxes, bunkers, Tobruk stands and other Atlantic Wall relics that are dotted around the area.
As you can see, most of the fortifications have ended up in the sea or toppled over by subsudence but there are still some impressive bits to photograph.
Apparently, the winter storms expose the concrete anti-invasion obstacles that are normally buried under the sand, causing some problems for the surfers. I'll have to have a look when we're over here again at Xmas.
