French Friday

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

I have just started reading “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr. It won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for literature for 2015 and already I can see why.

As it is set partially in St Malo, my favorite place in the world, I am looking forward to revisiting the locations mentioned in my mind and also in my photographs.

Here is a gallery of shots of St Malo, that wonderful walled town on the Brittany Coast.

Practically rebuilt after its tragic decimation in WWII it is a testament to the determination and skill of the French who were able to reconstruct the damaged town to its former glory for the world to enjoy.

An endless variation of light blues fill the sky. A good match for Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Color My World Prompt “Cornflower Blue” one of my favorite colours.

    1. Thank so very much. It is a place of endless views that are saturated with history and romance. I was fortunate to be able to have the time there to capture it at many different times and in different lights. Hope you have a lovely week! TJ
