One more time in Saint Goustan !!!

And yes one more time in Saint Goustan, such a sublime spot in my beautiful MorbihanSince finding this spot when I first move to the Morbihan back in May 2011; I felled in love with Saint Goustan , a harbor district of Auray. I have several posts on the city , and it just won’t stop coming. Therefore, I just want to give you another glance of this wonderful harbor from my recent visit ,yesterday to Saint Goustan, Auray is in my beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne ,right on the ria of Auray river that continues flowing into the Gulf of Morbihan and then into the Atlantic Ocean! It is only 14 km (about 9 miles) from my house !

I was there yesterday to have one of those moment when former collegues decide to have a drink and share old memorable stories. Is all we have left once retired and I did it early to enjoy more of the short life we have! Anyway, this is my latest tour of Saint Goustan!

As my collegue was not from this area, I told him to meet at the fame Place Saint Sauveur right at the harbor, and go from there.  Place Saint-Sauveur with its curved cobblestones is framed by opulent half-timbered and corbelled houses. The steep alleys, interspersed with steps, attack the district, lined with half-timbered facades. The residences of the 15C and 16C display a respectable allure, which in the evening slums in the rustle of the café terraces. Indeed sublime, recommended to all readers, visitors and would be residents.

Once parked along the Auray river banks, we met at the Place Saint Sauveur as schedule and decided where to have an apéro or apéritif drink. I suggested the lovely L’Armoric (see post) which is a regular venue for me and it was ok. We sat down with some Grimbergen blonde beers and talk the evening away from old stories and where our other collegues are gone and went. The talk was long and the drink extended , at the end we talk for 2,5 hrs and no food just beers!! Lovely, and we departed with promise of another meeting.

As of my new life, these are the gracious moments we have to connect with what we did well and was fun as well as the friendship gathered over the years. Until next time by sublime Saint Goustan!
