So it happens my mom lives close to the Bassin d'Arcachon which is located on Western France. When the tide is low the sea almost leaves the whole place and you can see a limitless area of ooze. It can be quite dangerous too: when you walk too far in, the mud sucks your leg in and the place can transform itself in sort of not so quick sands. Worse even when you sort of scratch this mud with the tip of the foot, you get it covered by a black gooey substance. This is this kind of treacherous muddy beaches I wanted to reproduce here. Of course there are no rocks on the Bassin darcachon but I could use a bit of extra drama.
