Hope you are ok today?
Dave and I spent the day exploring the coastline of Bretagne
with our good friends Elisabeth and Alain.
The weather was great, and the scenery spectacular.
It certainly helps when your guide knows where he is!!
First stop, La-Trinité-sur-Mer.
Fabulous harbour and phenomenal worldclass Catamarans.
Millionaire’s playground, if you ask an old landlubber like me!
So apparently the Jules Verne Trophy used to be awarded for
sailing round the world in less than 80 days.
Man (and woman) is now able to circumnavigate the globe
in 45 days.
Check out the progression below...
We can never be content with what we have achieved, can we.
We always have to better ourselves.
It’s a human thing.
We decided to kiss the coastline,
and quite by chance, stumbled upon the most exquisite little chapel, St. Philibert.
Said a prayer. Lit a candle. Had a think.
Look at the ceiling!
Perfect little venue for a wedding...
Next stop, the Pointe de Kerpenhir.
And there, staring out to sea, were the mother and child.
It was no good. I had to see what they looked like from the front.
So down I climbed onto the rocks,
jumping over the little rock pools,
covered in mussels and limpets.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Well worth the hop, skip and jump!
We combed the beach for a good hour,
for little precious stones and shells.
Just when you thought you had found the whitest,
most wonderful little shell ever,
Alain or Elisabeth would procure an even whiter,
even more perfect little masterpiece.
Next stop, St Cado.
Easy to remember, because I thought Alain was saying
cinque cadeaux, as in five presents.
Only when we were leaving, and I still had not worked out why the place was called five presents, did I interrogate him further.
Much laughter, completely lost in translation.
Our next new home :
At least you don’t have to worry about the neighbours!
I think I would love to have this couple as neighbours though....
They’re about as crazy as us two!!
So there we are.
A day in the life of two English people,
in the grand company of two French people.
