Poissonnerie Chez Elise in Le Barcares, France

Aside from going to the port to get our fresh fish, I also happily shopped at the Poissonnerie Elise (Elise's fish shop). A lot of people seemed to do that too as the place was packed all throughout the day. Its location was pretty convenient. It was right in the middle of the popular town square , Place de la Republique, surrounded by restaurants, gift shops, and ice cream parlors.

Fish Stall in Port Barcares, France

When I read online that it was possible to buy fresh fish straight from the fishermen, I quickly took note of the address and the hour schedule. In fact, the first place we went off to when we arrived at Le Barcares was the beach. We walked around and by surprise stumbled upon the fishermen's huts. I figured that it would be the area where we could buy fresh fish and made a mental note to come back the next morning when it was opened.

Street Markets in Le Barcares, France

Local Street Markets have always fascinated me. I love walking and looking around because there is always something interesting to find. Usually selling local products, you can be sure to find products that come from a nearby farm, orchard, or from a local artist. It is great to get souvenirs to give to friends, family, or even yourself. I am always for the look-out of something unique and that's why I love it. Plus, I also love buying fresh fruits and vegetables in street markets rather than in supermarkets.

The Beach in Le Barcares, France

Our choice of spending our vacation at the beach this year was obvious. It had been 4 years since I last saw the beach. For someone who lived most of her life on an island, I was slowly losing my mind and getting impatient. So when we finally made it to Le Barcares, the first thing we did after checking in our accommodation was head to the beach. It was late afternoon and the skies were turning gray, so we vowed to come back the next day when the sun would be out. But I stood without moving for a minute, my feet in the sand, and breathed in the sea air and I swear I felt better.

Top à la Vachette - Labat in Le Barcares, France

On one of our first nights in Le Barcares, we decided to check out the show - Top à la Vachette. It was something I had read online, but I wasn't so sure about it. We finally decided to go for it when we saw an advertisement that afternoon. We were a bit hesitant because for a summer night, it was a bit chilly and thankfully I brought jackets with us. I'm not sure if it was the suspense of the show or the cold night, but we were shivering at times.
