My travels in the Morbihan, LXV

And as had a longer weekend this time, here I am again to tell about our daily lives in our belle France! And even better our gorgeous Morbihan Breton. Today was hot sunny 25C or 77K and just bright perfect, even if we got up with a light rain at 8h. By noon it was just perfect day indeed.

As told in my previous blog post on my travels in the Morbihan , we were today to do some heavy work which was needed.  First , painted the laundry room in our basement , now just perfect. But still more work in my vacation in the basement, as the ultimate goal is to do two bedrooms for family and guests in the future.

Pluvigner

I went out and did my gardener’s  best as usually it was my dear late wife Martine who took care of it. We have 1000 square meters of land including the house, the garden is about 750 square meters and the house about 255 sm. So its a lot of land, and hopefully my boys still here helps me a lot.

Pluvigner

As my boys were changing TV from the one they got yesterday at Eletro Depot as in my previous post, the old one needed to be discarded.  We have been flooded now with pawn shops or cash outlets in our area and the new one was Easy Cash, (very nice French name ::)).  They were not only able to sell the old TV there but ,also some manga books and now they know. The store takes in almost anything so video games, cd’s, dvd’s etc. They will be back to clean up some of their older stuff which is hardly seen nowadays.

Vannes

We came back home and already did some work on the items we plan to sell including mines. Have very old CD especially which hardly listen to nowadays no need to have clutter in the house. Next time. This is the time of family vacation but as we are here far (min 6 hrs car drive) still do not think if going to visit some family members or just take off somewhere. We are always last minutes travelers. Only thing fix is Honfleur in late August but not really vacation, will be there to drop the ashes of my wife to sea with the SNSM volunteer lifeguards Notre Dame boat.

Oh yes we did eat of course. This time at home we had lunch with our great Krombacher German beer ,our wonderful local terrine of pork with 5 peppers, brie cheese from the market of Vannes, and the local Pluvigner baguette bread here call Breizh (which is Brittany in Breton language).  Also, top it off with wonderful saucisson sec home style with 3 peppers and Corréze area one a bit spicy call the Correzo.

The day still long and time to catch up on my previous travels and update my posts. It will keep me occupied and nothing better than going over memories at home on a hot day out.  Best weekend for most or finishing some.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

  1. Well done for doing all that work in the house and garden: hard work brings its own rewards! I like the idea of Easy Cash for future reference. I hope you got a good deal.
    I love Honfleur: beautiful and quaint. Enjoy! Bon Dimanche! 👍
