Beautiful walk

We had a beautiful walk by the sea on the Saints' Shore Way today, in glorious weather. Thanks to all who participated, and especially to several new French friends who joined us on our tour of the Pointe de l'Armorique. Here we (and our knees/hips) are having a well-earned rest at Beg Douar.
Despite the very welcome return of Jessie and Poppy (and their owners), a gorgeous newcomer wins  Dog of the Day.
NB: BWs annual picnic is on June 18th - watch this space...

Saints' Shore Way walk - Wednesday 15th May

We have a walk on Wednesday 15th May, starting at 2pm from the Chapelle St Barbe, between Locquirec and St Efflam on the north Breton coast. This is a coastal and countryside route of about 8kms, with no particular difficulty, many spectacular views and even some Roman baths.
Locquirec is a very attractive little port and a good place for lunch beforehand, only a few minutes from the departure point. From there take the Plestin road, cross the bridge at Toul an Hery and continue straight ahead (do not turn right toward Plestin) for 400m to a little square on the right where the chapel stands in the far corner.

Tro Menez Are

The annual Monts d'Arrée walking festival takes places on May 9 (Ascension Day) in Commana this year. Turn up any time of day from early morning and choose one of the well-marked circuits - anything from an easy 6km to over 30km, so something for everyone. You'll be in good company: the event usually attracts about 7000 walkers. It's a very friendly, sociable occasion, and there's a Fest Noz in the evening.
