Traveling in the Morbihan, and a lot more of it!

Well this another weekend and fall season is here so traveling in good nice cool weather is a breeze.

We took our ways and abouts to visit Erdeven, and Plouhinec, that comes out in many Brittany tourist brochures. The towns are very picturesques especially Plouhnic and Erdeven has wonderful beaches too.

Its another easy drive for me along the D22 direction Erdeven to hit city center right on, the imposing church tells you of arrival.  I found the fame a bit too much, other than a nice beach area, the rest has nothing to see, I was disappointed from the magazines and videos I have seen of it from tourists authorities. The official tourist webpage is at http://www.ot-erdeven.fr/

However, Plouihnec was different not a beach near but beautiful city center with quaint streets and houses, lots of restos in its center, and nice gorgeous church. This is the town to spend a day relaxing in small city life at any time of the year.

We were driven by car ,and found parking very easy at JP Collard center at Plouhinec. The official tourist webpage is at http://www.plouhinec.com/default2.asp#

It is lovely rides like these that makes Bretagne and especially the Morbihan so nice, with many choices, and great towns for most.

I am touching base on all of them when times allowed on weekends, and hope that later on with the family here we can go back to the best in detail; we have time ::)

Hope you enjoy the photos and help you planned your vacations in the Morbihan ::) Cheers

Traveling in the Morbihan, continues

Well Sunday is a slow day in France, time to be with the family. As mine still split between our two homes in Versailles and Brech, we (the twin boys and I) decide to go for a ride before coming back home for games and foodies.

We went out to check Sene, a town just to the south of Vannes ,right into the gulf de morbihan, and went all the way to St Ana , a port harbor very picturesque with a nice resto to come back for it as today it was closed.

We took a couple pictures, and walk around the area, vry nice and chic, lovely homes, and the sea of course, the sea is always good ::)  We came back to Vannes to eat and the boys decided to go back ,back American so we had lunch at KFC ,yes you know it kentucky fried chicken, had a branch here too lol!!!

Really, unless you head to tourist heaven in Port area of Vannes or ST Goustan in Auray ,or Quiberon, not much is open today afternoon. But we are well adjusted and we have everything at home ::)

The boys are getting ready as going to Versailles by October 21st, >I will come back for the job, my son will visit girlfriend grandpa at Nantes from the 25th and I will be heading on business to Madrid. Coming back the 28 evening to go pick them up home on the 29th and stay the Toussaint or all saints day holiday in France there, returning back to the Morbihan on Nov 1st. November it seems a busy traveling day at work….to be continue.

Now home watching TV and everybody on the internet with each computer’s. The family is back home connected and visited the area of La Defense ,near Paris yesterday with my oldest and wife. Until next time in my blogging ways, cheers and have a great week ahead everybody.
