Carnac, France

What a beautiful village. Right on the Bay of Biscay/Atlantic ocean.

Had a great nights sleep and now having a car free day.

Got up this morning and walked along the beach to the village to pick up the croissants and baguettes for breakfast. There is a lovely sea breeze and hope to have a swim in the Atlantic Ocean later on today.

There were people swimming but there was a lot of screaming and swearing. Presumably because of the temperature of the water.

Walking along the beach these were a few of the beach shacks I passed.

I have been told that the majority of these places are closed up all year and opened in July and August when the owners come for their summer holiday. What a waste!

Explored the village and found a few Patisseries and Boulangerie and the smell coming out of them all.

When I am in France I have to have a fresh croissant for breakfast every morning as there is something about that I love. When in France…..

We are having a quiet day today. I am sitting on the beach and we are going out for lunch around 1ish. As I said nothing too strenuous today.

Went for lunch at L’etage with friends of Max’s, Christine and Vincent. Lovely and the setting and lunch was delicious.

Overlooking the harbour with lots of boats, yachts, catamarans, it was lovely

After lunch came back to the house and was so hot I went to the beach.

They have 4m tides here and the tide was out so had to walk quite a way to get in the water and it only came up to my knees. However it was beautiful in and had a good splash around and a swim and lay on the beach for a while.

We had been invited to the neighbours for drinks at 6 just downstairs.

Off we went and I met Robin and Sheila. An English couple but lived in France for years. They bought their unit just after Max.

What a lovely couple

Well so much for drinks. Robin had could a sea bass which they were going to have for dinner and we were invited to stay. So we stumbled home just after midnight. Great night and great people.

Good night
