What is it about blue and white that seems to appeal to the human eye? It it the suggestion of a sky, dappled with clouds?
The craze of blue and white porcelain still endures and this French house on the outskirts of St Malo formed a part of an impromptu ramble on an uncertain spring day where we took the local bus as far as it would go and then worked our way through the streets to the seafront.
This strange carving on a rocky outcrop in St Malo seems to be for a knight or some sort of maritime memorial. It is certainly not on the regular tourist route.
Climbing down a precarious pathway we discovered a strange and almost obliterated carving on a rocky promontory that appeared to be a memorial for knight, worn down by the actions of the wind and the sea. A cross, set up in recognition of the sailors that sailed up and down the rugged coast gave a sombre feel to the landscape.
Returning pensively back we came across this humble home, the worn shutters shut fast against the blustery winds.
Since posting, the well-travelled Hogrider Dookes (check out his blog!) https://hogriderdookes.wordpress.com/ kindly sent me the solution to the mystery of the strange stone carvings. Thank you sir!
An artistic Abbe made the carvings about this part of the coast in the early 1900s. The article tells all!
