Rainy start, sunny finish

This turned out to be an excellent autumn walk, despite a wet start. The showers soon passed and we were treated to many beautiful views of wooded countryside in seasonal colours. There was even a little burst of sun to see us back to the cars at the end. A really special occasion as this walk united all but two of the original Brittany Walkers from 2004 as well as fab 'newer' regulars. Ally was dog of the day. Apr├Ęs-walk hot chocolate was at L'Autre Rive. Thanks to everyone.

Walk on Wednesday, Nov 20th

Our November walk is on Wednesday the 20th at 2pm from the old station between Berrien and Scrignac on the D42. The start point can be found in the bottom of the valley between these two bourgs and there is plenty of parking by the former station buildings. A Green Way or Voie verte runs along the Skirriou valley here.
The route for our walk is a new one (not the same as we usually do from this spot) and has some very attractive paths and views. It's the usual mixture of flat and gradual ups and downs, with a bit of road walking at the end. Some paths in the forest may be very muddy, so boots essential. Let's hope for decent weather!
