Hot walk!

We had a beautiful but very hot walk yesterday around the hilly country south of Plouyé. Thanks to all who gave up football and tennis time to join in! Thanks to Chris for the top photo.

Pleyben & Pont Coblant yesterday

There was a bit of rain during our visit to this fabulous parish close, and then a slightly damp picnic by the Nantes-Brest canal at Pont Coblant. But in the afternoon, we were lucky with the weather again and had a dry walk by the canal and then through some scenic countryside with excellent long views to Menez Hom. Photos by Dave.

Fantastic holiday!

Despite a soaking on the first morning, we had a wonderful time and mostly hot sunny weather on the north Finistere coast for our three day holiday. Fuelled by those two essentials, wine and salted caramel, we walked along most of the beautifully rocky coast between Plouescat and Plouguerneau, with diversions to places of interest and stops for Lesley to identify all the birds and flowers for us. Our accommodation at the restored fishing village of Meneham was really a delightful place to stay. We ate extremely well and had a lot of fun - together with all the coastal wonders of nature, it would be hard for ask for anything more. Thanks to everyone for great companionship and laughter.
Here is a link to Monique's album of fab photos from our trip. Thanks, Monique!
