Traveling in the Morbihan

Today Saturday was a day of setting off with the boys to different and usual parts in the department of Morbihan No 56 in Brittany ,France.

It was a  cloudy overcast day, a bit cloudy at first then opening up a bit with sunshine later on. The temps was about 15°C. no rain thus. We set out from home and first headed for the city center to see if the post office was open, hehehe here they close at 12h so we got there late it was closed lol!!! The bourg of Brech is fantastic isn’t it ::)

We then set out to city center Auray to get some cash and walk a bit, trying to see the post office there but it too closes at 12h so tought luck; we walk a bit more seeing the beautiful church of St Gildas in pl Notre Dame. This is a small but gorgeous church you all should see when visiting the area.

From we went to the city of Ploemel, we stop in city center and walk a bit around the church there but it was closed. It looks like a very nice old building with typical breton stones all over. We went over the gare or train station, and seek out the Karting complex there just to know where it is as the boys are looking forward to using it.

We,the, set out for Quiberon, the wonderful peninsula. WE did our usual walk and were able to find free parking in city center, winter time the tourists are out and the city is all for us ::) We did finally had our lunch at our usual place , the Quai Ouest resto which literally means Key West ( as in our old Florida hounds); we had our tuna on the plancha, hamburgers,beers, and desserts of floating isle,chocolat mousse, and caramel pudding ,plus coffee all for 61 euros for 3 persons.The resto is at the point of the bld ocean bordering the ocean, and its a great location for people watching as well as always great food and service. It has become our regular hangout in the city.

WE then left this wonderful beach town and headed for the seat of government in the department ,the city of Vannes. There we had our usual stop with the boys, the FNAC electronics games stores chain where we spent quite a bit of time ::) and Dad came out paying out again for mp4 machines. We then went over the Carrefour commercial center for our grocery shopping and a shoulder bag for my kid ,before finally heading home again with more traffic than usual.

Now we are leisurely at home watching TV and dad on the internet, well they are on the internet too but more multi handy with these gadgets than I ::)

We are all looking forward to next weekend when we will be heading to Versailles and see the rest of the family, and then next following week my son goes to Nantes to visit girlfriend’s grandpa,and I go to Madrid on business trip. The following week is a Four day weekend here so will be back in Versailles to get my father over with me as well. Busy and multi tasks, thats me ::) See you around the world somewhere, cheers
