The sign below is not something to glance quickly at and then ignore. If you happen to be in a car, you will be ignoring it at your peril!
Pay attention! Drivers need to be alert about what is right in front of them!
This sign is on one of the main streets in St. Martin de Brehal on the Atlantic seacoast of France. It may have been a gloomy and chilly day when we took our walk last Saturday through this village in Normandy, but at least the rain wasn’t horizontal as it had been for the previous four weeks.
Here is what the street looks like with a restaurant and bar right on the corner as you approach the beach.
The beach and the sea are just past the last building on the corner in St. Martin de Brehal in Normandy, France.
And this is the beach scene below. Walking on that beach is one thing, but trying to get a car out of the sand or potentially plunging into the high tide is another matter altogether!
If you drive down the wrong street in St. Martin de Brehal in Normandy, France -- this is where your car will end up!
