In the afternoon we drove over to St Malo to see what we could find. Granny and Granddad went for a walk around the walls without us for a while, so we took the opportunity to take a walk our along a very long sea wall to find the cache called Saint-Malo – Le môle des Noires. It required a little bit of thought as to where it could be placed and it took us out to a location we might otherwise wouldn’t have gone.
After this Kev, Kas, Ami, Izzy went down onto the beach in the town centre for some ice cream, some paddling and some sandcastles, but generally none of us had much enthusiasm for it.
By now it was more “late” afternoon than it was “mid” so we decided to go over towards Saint Servan to find somewhere for dinner, having suitably met up with Granny and Granddad again.
Saint Servan turned out to be a bit of a nightmare to park in, but when we did park up we found ourselves in a fairly nice looking spot with some excellent views. We also noticed a tempting looking geocache nearby called Saint Servan – Parc des Corbières, which, if we found it, would be our 100th total find. That was too good an offer to resist. It involved a bit of a hike over a small hill and along a wooded pathway before reaching an overlook onto a fairly secluded beach.
When we got back to Saint Servan we then tried, but failed, to find a cafe that was open for food (at 6pm). We were quite surprised to find that none of the cafes at this quayside in a fairly touristy (judging by the lack of parking) location was actually serving food yet.
We didn’t want to wait ages so for some reason we decided we’d jump into the car and drive over to Dinan instead. Well I guess it’s not that far, to be honest.
When we got there we ate at a place called Cafe Noir, and it turned out to be really good.
On the way home we got slightly lost.
We got the girls into bed at about 9pm and then popped out onto the lawn for a while for a bit of stargazing.
