In addition to walking on the coastal path around the Gulf, we shall also spend a day on the Ile d'Arz. The walking level is easy, and total cost of accommodation (chalet, shared rooms) and meals will be about 150€ per person.

Tuesday January 25th How to read a Breton Church

We have a day of visiting churches on Tuesday 25th. This is the follow-up to our course How to read a Breton Church, but is open to anyone (4€, free to course members). Meet at Pleyben in salon du thé in bakery in SE corner of market square at 10.15 for coffee, depart 10.30.
Transport will be in own cars (sharing if possible), and we'll be visting several locations, with a lunch-stop, probably at Sizun. Some of us are going to eat out, but you can bring a packed lunch if preferred. Finish about 4pm.
The purpose is to identify characteristic arrangements, themes and symbols in church architecture and decoration, so that this knowledge can be applied in your own visits all over Brittany. PLEASE BRING PRINTED SHEETS FROM COURSE IF YOU CAN!

Dry walk!

Not a drop of rain for today's beautiful walk in the forest of Huelgoat and along the River Argent. As usual we had a good January turn-out, and those who accepted Phil and Rosie's kind invitation to the après-walk got superb Christmas cake as a reward! Thanks to Dave for the photos, and everyone who came along.

Huelgoat walk - Tues 11th, 2pm

Hope everyone is keen to get out and walk in good company to start 2011 off well. We'll meet in the car-park by the mairie in Huelgoat (behind church in main square) for a 2pm start. Route depends on weather, but probably along the forest canal as it seems to be everyone's favourite. Level 2, Medium, no problems but footwear for muddy conditions essential and waterproofs a good idea. Look forward to seeing you there!
