I can't believe we've been back two weeks already, my holiday to Brittany feels like months ago. I'm ready for another one! But we had a lovely time with all the family.

Saturday morning early, we caught the ferry across the channel and left the shores of Britian behind

We had the cutest,most gorgeous house in Guidel, right on the coast. It looks a little like a ginger bread house, doesn't it? deceptively small but large enough to fit the whole family in!

We swam... sort of

We ate... A LOT!

We saw the most magnificent fireworks display that reflected and resounded across the bay in a dazzle of senses

We did the cultural thing

We did the fishing thing

And then it was time to go home, with a small detour to check out the postcard-picture-perfect Mont Michel

Of course, we did a whole lot more and made a spectacle of ourselves up and down the French coast line. I raised a few eyebrows asking perfectly nice restauranteers if they have calamari on their menu - I think the French consider calamari the equivalent of bait.

We sent the boys off to a circus for 2 hours and hubby and I enjoyed a picnic for two on the beach - just a small practice run for kife in a few years time when our fold has left the nest. It didn't go too bad, not bad at all :)

So goodbye France, we'll back, maybe a little further south toward Bordeaux and a little closer to the sun!


  1. Claire, it sounds like a wonderful holiday, full of quality family time (and with a /soupcon/ of romance thrown in for you and Hubby too!) Great pics. France is lovely and country I am dying to visit - can't seem to get Husband as interested though!

  2. Judy, we had a great time. What is it with men and their lack of interest in the country of love, lol?
    Hope you get there one day.

  3. Looks like you had an incredible time. And lots of sunshine too! Hope you also came back inspired.
