Surf's up.

After a brief meeting on the port, our WVU-Vendéens split up and return to their homes.  We had all looked forward to another adventure together today and were especially happy that several family members and guests from Les Sables were going to join us.

Before returning home, some of us drive out from the port to see the coast.  The rocks here are called "Le Puits d'Enfer" or "Hell's Well".  When waters are rough, the waves crash very heavily against this part of the shore.  The site is also famous in France for a murder that occurred in Les Sables several years ago.  A woman who had killed her husband tried to destroy the evidence by throwing the trunk containing his body into the waves at the bottom of these rocks.
