Vannes at night, its magical in the Morbihan

Well this was a night to relax before the big weekend, twin boys birthday 19 is tomorrow and then picking my father at Roissy CDG on Sunday morning lol!! Road warrior bien sûr

We were out on picking up our share of Beaujolais Nouveau wines by pl de poids public in Vannes,and then once car loaded, we went for a nice pizzas at Don Camillo by rue du port,in le port area of Vannes.

The wines took a running as we thought will be late, normally stores close at 19h here in provence France, but lucky for us we got there exactly on time just to find out the store normally close by 19h30 and sometimes 30h as per the manager. Both store personnel seen very knowledgable and friendly. ahh this is my favorite chain of wine stores ,NICOLAS.

We decided to try a different eating place this time and having passed by the pizzeria, we took the plunge into .It was a wonderful discovery as the service was fast and friendly, the food was excellent and with big portions, the place was full of local folks most with families. This Pizzeria Don Camillo at 20 rue du port, by the Le Port area across from the canal and the tourist office.

Once we finish, we notice in the pizzeria a poster announcing already a major event in the area for May 6-12, 2013 the Semaine du Golfe boat event during ascension French Catholic holiday next year.  It will be from several harbors including mine at St Goustan, Auray. A great event not to be missed if nearby here at the time or just come in if a sail, just boating enthusiast.

We walk Vannes at night, wonderful and very relaxing way to see the city from another angle, perhaps more intimate and up close. The main monuments are all lit up and beautiful especially the Cathedral of Saint Pierre., the Carmes auditorium, the Le Port area, and the quaint streets such as Rue des Halles, Pl des LIces, and rue Saint Guenhaêl, just lovely ,so enjoy the photos. And have a wonderful weekend y’all.
