Forest and brush fires
It appears that the current brush fire is on the UK news - we've seen the Canadairs flying overhead, these small planes that swoop low over lakes and scoop up water to dump on the burning forest.
The commune of Saint-Jean-d'Illac is not far from here, and not far from Mérignac airport, either.
On the map below the blue dot shows our house.
It's given a beautiful, dusty sunrise, but the smell of woodsmoke is in the air.
