Some news from France LIII

Hi you all here is a nice sunny Saturday even at 18h45 or 6:45 pm in lovely country in the Morbihan near Auray.

I now have a lot of photos and my next task will be to download to computer as it is a new digital camera hopefully all will be ok ::)

My event last week was good at Chateau Thierry near Epernay/Reims; had nice lunch with wine at the office! stay at a nice BW hotel in town;then went to Versailles saw the family and next day was at the Aero Club de France (near Arc de Triomphe) in Paris hosting a cocktail reception for the Paris Air Show my US University ERAU held; geat to see old friends and met new ones in a historical splendid place as is the Aero Club de France.

I went to Carnac and Carnac plage as well as la Trinité sur Mer;gorgeous,today. First Carnac is only about 17 kms from me, not only great monolithic stones around but the city center is lovely with a wonderfully decorated church and huge halles market; i had my lunch here at Le Cozy restaurant, and it was cozy alright, into a hallway away from the street, and very nice service, the food wonderfuly fish “colin” in a shrimp sauce plus entrée St Jacques terrine with celeries, great rouge Breton beer (3 ::))and coffee for 24 euros; not bad with the tourist season just underway by july 14 according to locals I spoked with.

Carnac plage or the Grande Plage is huge reminds me of those Florida USA getaway beach isolated now but huge come tourist season soon. Nuts and almond trees and plenty of sand and sun. Even saw a Latino Cafe , next time ::) I did walk once park by the mediatheque or library just to the left of the church, a total of 5 kms!! great for the soul under the Breton sunshine!

It was on to la Trinite sur mer; this is heaven of sailboats, huge marina facing the sea with hundreds of boats at anchored, park up the hill at St Joseph and came down on stairs right to the harbor. The harbor area is lovely , and will come back to it;at night!

At La Trinité sur Mer, did purchase at the Trinitaire lovely butter cookies and salted candies, the goodies of the region to take back to the family. The place is huge with all kinds of regional items and gifts plus clothings; its right on the beach commerces section ,cant missed it. Pictures to come later.

Now getting ready for another week of hard meetings at work, then the family is coming next weekend for a week to see schools and get to know the area before the big move, hopefully by the beginning of the next school year. My father will be in Florida USA for the month of July visiting his sister.

I have travel plans with the job to take me to many places in Europe, some been to it some will be new places to add to my 55 countries batch. Also, will be back to Paris in August and September for meeting and possible encounter with some travelers visiting the city.

The weather has been fabulous and sunny so far tomorrow here will be  a record 30°C announced.  Rains have been small and short periods, the sun has rule. Well until next newstime and for me to get going with the new camera and put the photos here, see ,read,hear you all soon. Stay with a happy face and happy travels as I am told some of you are really spending time out, great,good for you,and yours. Cheers.

  1. He leido algo, La Trinité sur Mer,! Fabuloso ! veo parte de tus planes,pensé que la familia ya estaba ahí,pero es explorando e informándose para la mudada definitiva lo cual es imprecidinble,ese lugar es ! bárbaro ! un ancladero de Yates y botes de todos los tamaños,una sección de la Playa para vender los productos allí producidos,El Café Latino,a lo mejor,quién sabes hacen,comidas Caribeñas,por lo menos no faltará los productos del Mar tan gustados por nosotros los Cubanos,esa Región está salpicadas de Playas ,Puertos y ensenadas Naturales para las embarcaciones menores,hay también Vinos espumosos y Sidras,producidos ahí,como en Galicias España,cuándo puedas déjames saber que variedades de Peces y Mariscos son corrientes de esa zona,sin temor a equivocarme,creo que la familia se adaptará muy rápido,hay ingredientes de sobra para que así sea,! éxito en la nueva dirección emprendida y que Dios te ayude en todo !
