Wait for the night before saying that the day has been beautiful

Breton Proverb

St Malo 2010

In August 2010 we took a family holiday in St Malo.
We drove down through the Channel Tunnel and stayed over in Rouen on the way.
Granny and Grandad came with us in the car, which made for a fairly packed drive.

Going Home

Going Home

More driving than you can fit into a large “driving” container. France is quite big, especially when everyone is trying to drive across it in the same direction.

Rothéneuf Rocks

Rothéneuf Rocks

A visit to some crazy and slightly unnerving rock sculptures on a cliff above the sea, followed by a major battle between us and our luggage.

St Malo & Dinan

St Malo & Dinan

An afternoon of wandering round the town, followed by an inexplicable trip back inland to find a restaurant. It was a good one though.

Cancale and Dinard

Cancale and Dinard

An afternoon on the beach, followed by a third failure at trying to get a parking space in Dinard.

Hédé and Dinard

Hédé and Dinard

A bit of a walk around some locks on a canal, followed by a total inability to find a parking space in Dinard (again).

The Norman Conquests

The Norman Conquests

The Bayeux Tapestry – it’s not a tapestry and it wasn’t made in Bayeux. I’m sure there’s laws against that kind of mis-selling.

Pleudihen Fête du Blé

Pleudihen Fête du Blé

Hands up if you know what “blé” is ! We found out when we arrived at a fête that was dedicated to it.

The Dinard Donder

The Dinard Donder

A generally slow start to the day with a lack of enthusiasm all round. So we left Granny and Grandad at home and scooted off geocaching.
