At the beginning of every year we decide where we are going to travel during our stay in France.
We had been to Brittany with our friends from England 25 years ago or so and really loved it.
Hilary has been very busy with her art program at University and we thought a vacation by the sea
might be something we'd all enjoy.
We were lucky enough to get reservations for this wonderful gîte at the end of February
for the last week available during the period of time we needed!
It was 400 meters from the beach and a 20 minute walk to the village of Trégnuc.
Guess what? It was terrible weather!
We got to really appreciate our rain coats.
But we made the best of it, going all over the area.
The hydrangeas were magnificent. In the beginning we were gasping at each new color we passed.
By the end of the week we would ... yawn, ho, hum, another incredible color.
Good thing was we didn't have to be torn between spending time on the beach and sightseeing!!!
