Vannes, capital of the Morbihan, Brittany

This is our capital city ,Vannes, home of the préfecture du Morbihan, and Gateway to the Gulf of Morbihan, a world on its own of goodies.

today it was 20C and we took a ride around town, nothing big, just a ride from our country home to the big city in our area. I work in Vannes but coming for a visit is always special.

Time to see the market or marché by place des lices and surrounding Streets,get me a bottle or two at Nicolas, some goodies at la Huche aux Pains bakery, coming home and having a nice lunch at a favorite family resto Les Trois Soleils in Plescop on the road D779 direction Grand Champ.
