French Friday – Bienvenue!

THIS PANORAMA WAS TAKEN FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWN HALL IN ST MALO. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO DRINK BAD WINE…OR INDEED TO NOT HAVE A KETTLE HANDY WHEN THE OLD BODY CRAVES A CUPPA!

THIS PANORAMA WAS TAKEN FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWN HALL IN ST MALO by a dear friend as we looked out over the ocean. La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin! – LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO DRINK BAD WINE!

Meilleurs voeux!

The tide in St Malo is astonishing. Several times a day this fortress by Vaubon is completely surrounded by the ocean and then the tide retreats and you can walk to it directly from St Malo.

Here is a little bit about a delightful restaurant we loved in St Malo.

I first tasted in Brittany delicious galettes of wonderful thinness filled with mouth-watering ingredients. While in St Malo we found a little place tucked into the centre of the walled city that became our favourite eatery, for not only were the galettes delicious, but the lady who ran the restaurant was so utterly charming that we could not resist going back again and again. When at last the time came for us to leave, this wonderful lady, with tears in her eyes, offered us a glass of rare home-made hydromel as thanks for us visiting so often and chatting with her.

It was my friend and I who were truly thankful, touched by her generosity and grateful not only for the wonderful food but the charming company of a truly delightful person. To taste genuine hydromel, unobtainable in the shops was also a unique and precious memory.

The restaurant is there still I believe and I hope one day to again enjoy one of the delicious galette aux Saint-Jacques et fondue de poireaux that causes my mouth to water still just thinking of it!

Waiting for the tide to turn I caught this yacht silently gliding past the fortress by Vaubon. https://amaviedecoeurentier.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/vaubon-fortress/
