My travels in the Morbihan, LXXIX.

Ok so today started out cloudy then turn out sunny and now back to cloudy so much for the weather in my Morbihan dept 56 and time for another episode of My Travels in the Morbihan.

I am in my 79th episode of this post and really like it to tell miscellaneus events at or near me. Oh for the newbies Morbihan is dept 56 of the region of Bretagne, in my belle France. It is the department, province or state where I live.

The temperature right now is 15C and by the time I go to bed will be 7C.  OR 57F and should be around 45F when I go to bed tonight. We did some road warrior today , hoping for better weather to cut the grass and spray some grass weeder, so should be ok for tomorrow.

We started out by stopping at our local supermarket Super U to get some household items, not all available. So we continue to the hypermarket Carrefour in Vannes, and the rest.

We stopped along the way in several places looking for prices on GPS attachement for my son Yamaha scooter, first was Norauto a car parts store chain in Vannes, then Morbihan Moto where purchase his bike, then Feu Vert in Auray , another car parts store chain. As well as the above ,so now he has a good idea of the prices! Shopping around is a must….

We did stop by E Leclerc  in Vannes, as today is the start of their wine faire or foire aux vins ,held in a special tent in the parking lot, and we load up again…. about two cases worth of red, rose and whites. The folks were out and it was great as usual. See my previous post on the wine fairs going on now in my belle France.

On the way back home, we stopped by V&B in Auray for our beers as soon will be Octoberfest, celebrated here not as big as USA or Germany for that matter but plenty to go around with Paulaners and Krombachers!!! We got about 40 bottles lol!!!

And , already do not recall if was going out or coming back, but we passed by Sainte Anne d’Auray where the basilica of Sainte Anne is, to get around the town and saw by Pont er Groah nice housing type windmills way back in the sanctuary that is actually an open air theater!! not recall seen them before. So here they are!   The open air Theater in the Basilica de Sainte-Anne d’Auray shows a 2 hours huge spectacle with more than 200 actors and figures in costumes of the times with farm animals, carts, and carriages in the recontructed village of Ker Anna of the 16C recounting the apparitions of Sainte-Anne (the mother of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus) to a humble Breton farmer Yvon Nicolazic.
