Hello sunshine ☀️ long may it last. We are enjoying being outside, lots of walking and cycling now that the weather is getting better.
We are also loving the French markets which are just brimming with amazing fresh food and yummy things. We seem to find a new market in every location. We are trying lots of new things in each place & have found that strawberries from Plougastel are the worlds best, Brittany butter is devine \240and cheese in general from anywhere is delicious.
Today we did a boat tour of the Golfe of Morbihan. Not on Verano Azul but Angelus 4 - a tour boat for the Golfe. We read that the currents & tide in the Golfe are pretty treacherous so let another skipper do the hard work today. Morbihan is a beautiful almost inland sea with 42 islands and a very small entrance into the Atlantic. See the photo of the map below.
We ate delicious fresh oysters, \240followed by \240lobster with saffron sauce & chips, followed by strawberries & cream lunch with a nice bottle of Vouvray to wash it down (yummy) followed by a pretty walk on the largest island, \240Isle aux Moines (Monks Island). This whole area is full of dolmans & cairns as well as being stunningly beautiful. It’s unlikely we would ever have come here if we hadn’t been passing and we can highly recommend it.
Tomorrow we move on South again to the edge of Brittany.
Just after I took this Andrew stepped knee deep in stinking rotting seaweed 😂
