Photos: Etretat

Do you have friends who are spontaneous? I do. 

Do you have any idea what happens when your friends are spontaneous? It gets very interesting. 

You might be sitting in a cafe, eating French dishes and forcing the establishment to run out of their desserts especially Creme Brulee. You will be sitting in the cafe till past the midnight hour. Then you end up planning a trip in the morning to a nearby beach. This is the glimpse of what might happen.

In fact, all these happened to me and four of my spontaneous friends, two of them from Paris and other two from Canada. We decided to visit Etretat. Although the plan was to leave Paris early in the morning, it was already afternoon by the time we left. Etretat is a beautiful beach town with rocky cliffs on both sides of the pebbled beach. The cliffs form an interesting pattern, almost making you think it is a small door which opens up inviting you the shore.

As we reached around the sunset, we could click many pictures. Moreover, my friends readily agreed to model for me. After shooting numerous pictures, we ended up in a restaurant. Luckily, all the waiters spoke English fluently. I tried raw oysters for the first time. It was delicious. Of course, I put a lot of butter and garlic as topping on the raw oysters.

    1. There was one lone surfer on the beach. But I could not take a picture of him. Otherwise, it is the cliffs that make this place unique. Everybody climbs up the cliff to get a view of the beach. In fact, the first is taken from the cliff
