the lime-kiln at Grand Cap (le four chaux, to the right of the lane of " L'eau-forte ")

The sight of the waves breaking against the jagged rocks is even more impressive and spectacular the days when the swell is stronger. Strange sculptures of animals or faces stand out between the sky and the sea.
Each break creates its very own fireworks display of white spray and foam wich froth in the air before landing on the rocks below.
The filaos trees sway in the wind and the sea spray moistens the faces of passers-bay. Only the old cheminey of the ancient lime-kiln appears to be sheltered from these energetic waters ! On days such as these you will never see fishermen stnding on the cliffs. You will witness only the beauty and the force of the ocean an feel intoxicated by its power !
