I do like to be beside the seaside

Today’s adventure took us to Malestroit where there was a small market.

Here are some of the fabulous things that were on offer for us…

Can you believe that somebody did this model’s hair up and thought “Yup – this is going to sell a lot of hair clips! and you know what?  I’ll leave that dirty mark on her face as well.”

I quite liked the idea of this being a new aged ‘hear ye, hear ye’ speaker system for the whole village.

And it really was one of the prettiest places that we’ve been in France.

And the quaintest.

France was clearly full of tiny little people.

But not as gorgeous as the ones who were there that day!

On the way out of town, we found ourselves behind this van with the smallest trailer that any of us had seen.  Surely his trailer load – including his trailer could have fitted in the back of his van!

We were on our way to the south coast of Brittany to a town called Damgan.  It was full of shells and rocks full of oysters that you could collect yourselves.

Instead we chose to go to a restaurant – the only one that was open after 2pm because France has a fantastic work system where they close in the middle of the day for a Spanish Siesta – my kind of town!

Jason was super happy that he finally got some lovely French cuisine in France!

Then it was souvenir shopping – I won’t tell you who I bought these for…

I don’t know if the people in this photo are famous or if they just come with the frame…. but it’s pretty special either way!

After lunch we popped down to the beach to see if we could see where our oysters had come from and did a bit of beach combing…

You are allowed to collect 5 dozen oysters per person per day.

This chap had captured a few and gave Deb a taste of a welk which she described as salty – funny that!
