August 1st: campers arrive at the Blue Waves campsite from all over Europe. As they do every year, they set up their tents, caravans and iceboxes facing out over the Atlantic Ocean. And like every year, the regulars are delighted to be reunited at Blue Waves. Mattresses are inflated, barbecues primed, canned food opened, aperitifs served, and The Shogun (the local nightclub) rocks. What can beat life in thongs? Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.
