Les planches de Deauville - 37th G8 summit in Deauville 028.jpg

Les planches de Deauville, a famous wooden promenade on the beach in Deauville, France. This picture was taken two days before the 37th G8 summit, during which the whole area was under extremely high security measures ("sanctuarized zone"), and reserved to Heads of State, Heads of Government and members of their delegations. Tourists are seen walking on the promenade. In the background, construction workers are building a temporary veranda attached to Le Ciro's Restaurant, where a work dinner was held for G8 participants and their spouse during the summit.
