Travel Tips for Arcachon

Sailors' feet

by bugulma

To the quay the path leads where you can see the map of the bay where Arcachon is. Besides there is glory alley of steps of sailors(I'm not sure about the name but I name it so) :-) I check my size and it seems I'm taller.

Port of Arcachon

by bijo69

The fishing port and the marina (second in size on the French Atlantic Coast) are located in the Ville d'Automne, about a 15 minute walk along the beach from the centre.
Here you can hire sailing boats, take sailing classes or book fishing trips.

How to eat oysters (step by step)

by bugulma

"Last step indeed"

On the picture you see the last step of the process "How to eat oysters". First of all I should say that I do it once in my life and if you want to see professional view on the question, it's better to look through Lionel (lorgnierl in VT) about Arcachon.
So, it looks very easy, to eat oysters, but in the beginning you should have patience to open oysters and of course the good knife is the must!!

"Step 1. Don't forget to buy oysters!!"

It's the main step in whole process. If you haven't step 1 you won't be able to enjoy delicious oysters

"Step 2. Open oysters"

It's the hardest step of the process. You need good knife and it's better to have a special mitten because oysters have rough surface.

"Step 3. Draw apart leaves of oyster"

Then you should draw apart the leaves of oyster with soft movings

"Step 4. Cut the nerve"

Then, you should run with knife along the leaf and cut the nerve

"Step 5. Throw away one leave"

After cutting nerve, you throw away one of the oyster's leave and you see the oyster.

"Step 6. Eat it!"

Now it's absolutely ready to eat it. So, get it by yourself or give it to your friend. The result you may see on the first picture of the travelogue.
