INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP DAY  All the trash collected from the beaches in Biarritz this morning from Port Des Pêcheurs to Plage Du Miramar, with @bgrettenberger #internationalcoastalcleanup2017 #internationalcoastalcleanupday #beccalovesbeachcleaning #beachclean #beachtrash #biarritz #france #cleanyobeach #cleanyobeachbeaches

Today is International Coastal Cleanup Day! Braved the stormy weather to do a beach cleanup in Biarritz this morning, from Port Des Pêcheurs all the way to Plage Du Miramar. So proud of @bgrettenberger for helping me on a rainy and early Saturday morning! If you live near the beach take a few minutes to get out there today and grab some trash, it doesn't take much time and it's important for us to protect the beautiful places we love! If we all work together we can make an impact, rain or shine! Check out my story on my beach-combing account @seaandgather to see more photos from our clean up!

The much-needed sun came out for us today! #grandeplage #biarritz

Those winter whites are making an appearance a little too early this year... rainy morning run view from a very empty Grande Plage.

Couldn't believe how many nurdles had washed up onto Grande Plage this morning! I picked up this huge handful in just 10 minutes. Yuck... check out my story on @seaandgather for more pics! #nurdles #grandeplage #biarritz #cleanyobeach #cleanyobeachbeaches #2minutebeachclean

Morning run view, making friends with this little seagull! I used to never go out to this little point because it was a parking lot, but the city just converted it to a lookout point with freshly planted grass, trees, a seating area and a cobblestone path that's an extension of the main sidewalk... it's small, but I love it because now I can add just that much more distance to my morning runs!

That early morning light in Biarritz is starting to have that F A L L feeling!

It only takes two minutes! Quick little beach cleanup on Agní beach yesterday... all this trash in just a few minutes! #2minutebeachclean #cleanyobeach #cleanyobeachbeaches #agnibeach #corfu #greece #beachtrash

I wish every weekend looked like this! Yesterday's chill spot with the cutest pastel umbrellas mimicking my favorite type of Mediterranean Cypress trees! #agnibeach #corfu #greece

Picturesque little rustic streets on the island of CORFU #greece

SO happy to have my favorite French running buddy back in town for a couple weeks! Morning run with @serenalutton catching up + enjoying these views! Last week with these cute stripes, and also - look at that empty beach and clear running path! All the vacationers are finally starting to head home...

August days à la G R A N D E plage

Another pretty graphic spotted à la plage this afternoon in #biarritz

Crazy adventure yesterday sailing all the way from the port of Hendaye, France to San Sebastián, Spain (our first sailing experience!) to watch Semana Grande, an international fireworks competition. Watching them from the water with the view of the city in the background was so incredible! And then we sailed all the way back home... I get super seasick on boats so I don't think I would ever do this again, but it was such a fun experience! Woke up still feeling like I'm on a boat. Thanks for an epic day! @thewindandsea @reyesfamgoeseuro #semanagrande #sansebastian #spain #imonaboat

Mini Biarritz balconies were made for drying surfboards & wetsuits #châteaugrettenberger #biarritz #france

Another shot of yesterday's beautiful sunshine, since it's raining and cloudy again today. #grandeplage #biarritz #france

A U G U S T insanity in Biarritz... could hardly find a spot on the beach today! Two more weeks of jam-packed beaches and difficult to find parking spots... I hate to wish away summer but by the end we are always feeling ready for a little more personal space. #grandeplage #biarritz #aoûtenfrance #août

Graphic patterns in the sand spotted during my morning beach-comb... check @seaandgather to see what I found! #grandeplage #biarritz #france

Beautiful Budapest! Loved this pastel pink building spotted while walking to dinner with @shaunafreese #budapest

So many great color combos and design details on the streets of #budapest

Treat yo' self day in Budapest! Feeling refreshed after massages, saunas, steam rooms, thermal water soaking, and wave pools at the Gellért Baths! #budapest #gellertbaths #takethewaters

Relaxing day soaking in the thermal waters of Gellért baths with @shaunafreese Kinda gross but really majestic all at the same time!  #budapest #gellertbaths #takethewaters

Gorgeous details on the streets of Budapest... really loved this mint green door! #budapest

Cuteness on the streets of Budapest... I'm always a sucker for a cute old car parked on a cobblestone street! #budapest

Breakfast in BUDAPEST  Weekend adventure with @shaunafreese starts now!

Dark and rainy August day in Biarritz

S U N D A Y

Sunshine & Friday, one of my favorite combinations! #villabelza #biarritz #france

Busy summer mornings at the Côte des Basques  Haven't had enough days this summer where we wake up to sunshine, so today is a good day! How is it already August? Don't go by too fast, summer! #côtedesbasques #biarritz #france #paysbasque #kindabreak

All-day beach days are the best kinda days  #erromardie

Love the confetti covered streets at the Fête De Bayonne!  #fêtesdebayonne #france

Festive streets lined with colorful flags in the cute city of Bayonne for the #fêtesdebayonne

Super fun day at the Fêtes De Bayonne with these girls! Always love celebrating at this yearly white & red party! ️️

Morning run view... prepping for the busy beach day with two rows of umbrellas! ⛱⛱ #grandeplage #biarritz

Red scooter, red signs, red shutters... the streets of Biarritz are color-coordinated this evening, and maybe trying to tell me to get prepared for the Fêtes de Bayonne? I love the cute moments hiding around all the corners in this little town! ️

Peak summer at GRANDE ️ PLAGE #biarritz #france #grandeplage #parasols #grandeplagephotocontest
