Lovely nearby Auray!

Ok so we are getting into cold nights and dark , so winter is coming and the season to be merrier too. I used to lived here when moved into the Morbihan breton dept 56 and later purchase my house elsewhere. However, the town has charm and we always come here and shop here too.

What is here, Auray, the historical town where Benjamin Franklin landed to ask help from king Louis XVI for the American independance war with England, and he got it. Marquis de Lafayette but also Marquis de la Roulie of Fougéres Brittany and General Rochembau and Admiral Grace and his 29 French Caribbean flotilla to block Yorktown. And so on….Gen Pershing later said, Lafayette , we are here in WWI. And so on…

Let me tell you a bit more as have several posts on Auray in my blog but its been a while not by this area. Took advantage as my oldest is passing his driving licence here and I came to pick him up tonite.

There is a nice small stadium here , the Loch. Stade du Loch, name after the river passing below in Saint Goustan.  It has Track and Field stadium in stabilized/ashen with 4 cloakrooms with showers and a 400-seating grandstand has a track of 400 meters. It includes 4 jump areas including 1 high jump, 1 long jump, 1 long jump and triple jump and 1 pole vault. Athletes will be able to find 3 pitches including 1 discus throw, 1 javelin throw and 1 hammer throw.   Football field in natural turf with lighting, 4 changing rooms with showers and a tribune of 400 seats.  Stabilized/ashen petanque/ball field with lighting. This sports equipment consists of 10 corridors (or runways, stations). And an asphalt basketball court.

You can go to the Place de la République where the city/town hall is located and go down on Rue du Château to Saint Goustan harbor as well. This is  a very steep hilly street so be prepared. Or as I do by car come around the parking Keriolet into the harbor or along the road D765 by the back side.

I went a bit into the old town of Auray lovely old world street so romantic me think, I can be dwelling here forever and nice places to drink and eat here too, that is in other posts.

All a lovely small town nestled between the regional government powerhouses Lorient and Vannes as well as down from my town of Pluvigner.

Enjoy it as I do, Morbihan, Brittany, France the very best combination in the world. When can I see you around here? So far two of my internet travel sites friends have come fyi.

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