My new two loves, work in Vannes, live in Auray

Well on a crisp cool sunny day, and hotter as the day worn on, we set out to do our errands and catch up as the next weeks I will do lots of foreign travel on business. This weekend was spent with the twins boys.

We started out in Auray where we live, and went to do our usual gas filling station at Leclerc hypermarche, got some groceries done there, went downtown to take some cash from ATM ,and then went on to visit a treat.

Office workers have told me about an American couple who own a cafe in a small village not far from me, so we set out to check it out. We arrive by 14h30 and on slow season food was scarse but we managed a cold Lancelot breton beer chatting with owner Ellen at the Gorvello Cafe, a cafe, with arts and music events in season, and a B&B as well. It was refreshing to see a fellow American in this part of the woods, rare but not the only ones lol!!! We promise to be back in season with the whole gang for a real show of numbers ::) the webpage is here

As we were really hungry we came back into Vannes, for a nice mussels on cream or moules à la créme and chorizo andalouse pizzas, with banana splits, coconuts ices,coffees,and grimbergen red and blonde beers at our favorite hangout by the Le Port area the Cat Way Pub at pl Gambetta, overlooking the pleasure boat marina and canal. all for 60€ for 3 persons.

We then set out to do some shopping in old city center of Vannes, got those Leonidas chocolates for Mom, bottle of Henriot champagne, bordeaux wines ,and cd, books ,and video games of course at FNAC. We end up back home in time for the great match tonite France vs Ireland at 21h50 French time for the VI Nations rugby tournament; allez les bleus !!!!

Tomorrow is a promise movie of Sherlock Holmes 2  at Cinéville Vannes with the twins  webpage at    and then relax for the long week ahead.  ok update before the movie we have lunch at a new place call Brooklyn Cafe a cybercafe with free wifi and internet, large screen tv anbd wii games, cafe style brand new concept and nice at Atlanville area of Vannes.
