My parents left yesterday after an extended trip to France that involved intensive private French lessons in Tours. We also went to see the Tour de France go by in Montmorillon (possible post coming on that but I didn’t actually take any pictures myself…), returned to some of our favorite spots in the Vienne, and got in the car last Friday evening for the long drive (almost 6 hours) up to the north Atlantic coast, to Kerlouan and the village of Ménéham, in the Finistère département.
I love Brittany and my parents have also traveled there quite a bit, but our trips have always taken us further east.
It was J who motivated us to go as a there was a bouldering competition/festival taking place this weekend thanks to the endless boulders on the beaches there. The weather on Saturday was perfect though in true Breton fashion the morning started out sort of misty and cloudy.
It was obviously really beautiful and I would really like to go back up there and spend a whole week.
