Soulac-sur-mer at dawn.

0630 and nothing much is stirring.

The Rue de la Plage is the town’s main street, lined with shops, restaurants, cafés and bars.

The street is washed down early each morning in summmer.

The seafront is, at his hour, all but deserted. The building in the centre was once the Nouvel Hotel, now it is holiday apartments.
