My travels in the Morbihan XV

Well today is the official start of Summer !!! and it shows with temps here as high as 27C and very hot sunny. We have a little breather on work on the house until next month, so a nice ride into Vannes and Auray our main cities near us.

We could not stop going to l’Igloo an ice cream parlor in Auray and also, at Carnac plage which we enjoy both. The Saint Goustan area of Auray is the harbor going out into the Gulf of Morbihan and a wonderful area already full of tourists mostly from UK. see my entry on Auray of October 5, 2011.

We enjoy the Conigloo with a chocolate coated cone, scoops of peach and  pear (your choices), chantilly, choco syrup, and sprinkles of almonds all for 5€. The chichis as we call here or Churros in Spain are 4,50€ with long sticks and caramel sauce add 0,50cents.

Parking is always free along the river loch near the old bridge in St Goustan side along a path of many painters and artists workshops.  Like in this webpage http://www.saint-goustan.net/
