There is something magical about beaches and there is nothing more romantic or fascinating than beach sunsets, so even this one at Bandol beach in the Var region in southern France.

Bandol don’t just have great beaches, it’s perhaps most known internationally for it’s excellent wines, so if you ever go there: make sure to get the chance to taste it.

I couldn’t resist to take a photo of this stranded shark laying on the beach turned to the sunset… *giggles*

No, I didn’t swim, I was too afraid of the sharks… ha ha… or was it maybe since my back can’t handle to be chilled down? Hm…

The others were swimming before the sun did set even though some were a bit hesitating….

    But I’m not too sure where is Bandol? Is their wine really wonderful?

    Yes, Cecil Lee, it’s really a wonderful place AND wine! They even have a winefestival there because of that.

    Bandol!!! Your pictures are super. I recognize this one who hesitated!!! :razz:
    Yes! Bandol is good but Bordeaux too and Bourgogne and Côte du Rhône and Gewurztraminer from Alsace are excellent too!
