Calm after the storm

The Pyrenees Orientales was on alert rouge here for a couple of days this week. When it rains, it pours here in the Deep South!
We're on the med here, practically a lake for all intents and purposes and we rarely see waves. The surfers drop everything once they see a ripple in the water and dash headfirst into the big pond.
So when we get waves like this in Collioure .. it's making hay time!
Collioure - surfin dude
Things we rarely see in Perpignan!

Our road is blocked. One poor soul got washed away in the deluge during the week
In Canet, all kinds of sealife were hurtled onto the sand by the crashing waves. This seagull got lucky with a sea snake
Le lendemain. Blue skies are restored. Snow is forecast for Tuesday though! The world has gone mad!

Canet Classic Cars

The first Sunday of every month, vintage car lovers and owners gather in the car park of Casino Hypermarket in Canet Plage to strut their stuff with their fabulous vintage cars..
We toodled along on Sunday morning bright and early to feast our eyes on the cars, campervans, motorbikes and scooters with the cool dudes of Perpignan.
There were at least 200 cars there and a selection of ancient motobikes also. Well worth the visit if you are into your classic cars...
How much is that doggie in the window?
