August 2019


Heavy wind kicks up sand.


Just having returned from a trip to the States to August doldrums in Paris, I welcomed the invitation to Deauville from fellow American in Paris, Janice and her dog Shotzi, for the weekend.


 

On dog walks you get views of neighboring Trouville...


...and typical Deauville architecture.


Horses are a large part of life in Deauville and share the beach.


Then it's on to the hippodrome (race track).


His jockey fell off at the gate, but this two-year-old raced on his own to win, although technically, you need a rider to be in the money.

Right: After winning, horse and jockey are elegantly escorted to the winner's circle by this recurring figure.
