My new home of Pluvigner in the Morbihan Breton XXXI!

Once again I come to you to tell you a bit on what we do here and the real routine life of living in France for a common family. Yes France is glorious the large number of visitors tells us that, and we know it. Not only because we are French and live here for 16 years already ,but because we were French before living here and visited every year from 1990 to 2002. And as my title of my blog tells you, I alone have been coming to Paris especially since 1972!

But now for the last 8 years I have been  on the west of France in lovely Brittany and beautiful Morbihan dept 56 way out in country living in a small town of Pluvigner with only about 7K folks. Since my birth town was even smaller , I have traveled the world always in bigger cities to come back like to the roots in a small town. However, very much alive as today there was a youth rugby festival here sponsor by BMW, and of course the European elections.

We set out to vote by 10h walking as we live not far from city center and the voting hall. This is always at the Salle Marie-J. Le Borgne right after the cemetery.  May 26 Sunday , today is an important day that might shape the future of Europe as France is heavily counting on staying close rank and banner country for the European Union. Whether against or for it, it is the one thing that have kept Europe at peace.  I did my civic duty and voted, may the best win, and remember democracy is the rule of the mayority with the rights of the minority; so be it.

As I walked with my sons and our dog Rex,(he had a blast) , we sometimes forget the nice we have and seldom past by it unless needed ,as the urge is always to go out, not shabby either if you have been kept with my posts on the Morbihan, plenty of nice things to see here. As I have said many times ,Hemingway felled short when he describe Paris as a movable feast, he should had travel more into the country side of France! As France is a movable feast!

We past by the city center/downtown Place Saint Michel and Place de la Placen all along rue Gén de Gaulle. And into the rue Maréchal Leclerc and back on the Route de Bieuzy . In passing we saw again our emergency convenience story Proxi, the Poste or post office building very much in use by us international globettroters , the city/town hall with its nice garden, the pharmacy , a must stop for my father’s medicines as he suffers from diabetes.

We check the new electric meter counter installed recently and my consomption is now less by 36 euros per month!! great!!! I always like to look at our eyeglasses store Optic 2000 which occupies a very nice building in city center/downtown. And of course our voting place.  Not to ever forget the wonderful Church of Saint Guigner belltower. Saint Guigner is the one who came here from the islands (UK) back in the 400’s and the town carries his name as Plu is breton for parish, and vigner is a contraction of Guigner so the parish of Saint Guigner became, Pluvigner or in Breton  Pleuwigner !

And so it goes our Sunday now home getting ready for that special barbecue cook out and some cold beers or wine depend on the mood was ready to eat, my boys take cares of the grill and I put the drinks. Life goes on, we do not even want to mention but I must that today is Mother’s Day in France as well. Unfortunately we do not have one now, they are at sea ,and I believe their spirit is guarding us and helping us as we go along in life. Happy Mother’s Day for those celebrating.

We come to another blog ends, there are over 2100 for me now a wonderful experience thanks so much to readers like you, and I appreciated very much. Enjoy your Sunday!

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