My new home of Pluvigner in the Morbihan Breton XVIIII

Well, do not know you, but me, once have a photo need to do something about it or forgot it all. As tomorrow is back to work after a long five day weekend, need to catch up. Awaiting of course, our summer vacation in August.

We had a visitor from the Americas with us for these last few days and it was nice to talk to someone we had met and renew the friendship again. Today was the last day as she was leaving in the afternoon to Montparnasse Paris and onwards in her trip.

Therefore, we settled for a quick trip around my town, small quiet and cloudy but no rain!! We went walking as all is within walking distance. My boys joined us for the walk, so good company.

We did a town reconnaissance walk going by our family haircutter Annie, then the convenience supermarket store Proxi.  We stop by le Stadium bar to go across street to a field where there is a stone memorial to a B17 American bombardier that crash landed here, all dead except the radiomen. The family member came back and a ceremony was held in 1994 for the stone memorial; nice town.

We went by the mediathéque or library in town, and past into the residential area to visit the fountain of St Guigner (c. 1526)and laundry of Tanin.

The highlight of the trip was to visit the Church of Saint Guigner  (16C) in city center, our main Church (see post) . The legend has been told before in other posts where he was the son of an Irish king  named Clyton who was made Christian by St Patrick,and  came here to evangelize the area in around 406AD.

After this nice walk in town, we came back home for lunch. And we took our friend to the train station in Auray for her TGV to Montparnasse Paris. It was nice to be with friendly company for a few days, and we wish her good continuation of her trip in France, Germany and the USA.

We came back home to have our apero snacks with porto red and now relaxing getting mentally prepare to go back to work tomorrow. You all have an excellent week. Until next time in my blog; Cheers!!!
