PORTFOLIO – This Sunday, January 10, the many walkers who came to enjoy the sun on the beach of Petit Nice in La Teste-de-Buch were surprised by the quantity of wood, roots, stumps and sawn logs present in large quantities on the sand. Remnants of erosion, these elements have become material for sculpture and fun.

At the southern end of Petit Nice beach, Lagoon beach seems to bear no stigma. However, it is there that in one year the coastline has retreated by more than 50 meters. The Lagoon beach remains closed to the public. © Photo credit: Sabine Menet
At the north end of Petit Nice beach, it is the dune of Pilat. A last wooden sculpture stands at the edge of the water. © Photo credit: Sabine Menet
