Sleeping on a beach in SW France
Just wondering - will I need a self-inflating sleepmat for a sandy beach? I'm thinking the sand will still be warm from the day, but you know what they say about how cold it gets in deserts, so does the same apply for southwest France I wonder? Will be flopping down between Beziers and Perpignan.
The reason I'm asking is, I'm traveling really light
with just a carry-on bag, so want to leave as much food space as I can for when I get there. I'm only going for four nights (£2 return) and will stay permanently on the beach - maybe moving along a bit if I get bored or if it gets noisy. Not sure about the legalities of it all, but I'll deal with that - or them with me - when I get there.
Along with some simple cooking stuff, me trollies and some of the usual suspects, all I'm taking is a one-season sleeping bag that will go into my ex-army 'Goretex' bivi bag. The bivi bag will take the rain, but I'll also take a lightweight tarpaulin which will allow me to 'live' in case of poor weather. Some rain is actually forecast, but that's the luck of the draw I suppose so I'll take my chances.
Any response welcome. Thanks.
I've a feeling I'm not in Kansas anymore.
