A rather damp time in France

Well, it's taken me ages to update our blog with this post from the summer, but in August we headed to Brittany in France with my parents and brother.

When we arranged the holiday earlier in the year I had imaged warm summer's days spent on the beach and frolicking in the sea, but nothing could have been further from the truth.

We took the Speed Ferries catamaran from Dover to Boulogne-sur-Mer and drove straight to out Gite situated on the outskirts of Dinan, a beautiful walled town not far from Saint Malo.

It rained or was overcast pretty much consistently from arrival until the Thursday, so we had to make the most of our holiday time as best we could.

On our return trip we visited the Ch√Ęteau at Fougeres before staying in Rouen for one night.

Highlights for me were the walled city of Saint Malo, Dinan, Rouen and a lovely raclette meal one evening in Dinan port.
