Ok Ok. Saint-Malo is not in Normandy. But it is so close I'm going to bend and assume. And then of course my ancestors were Normans, but Brittany (South, but Brittany). Saint-Malo in Brittany.
If I tell you that on the beautiful beaches of the bay, one of the sports activities in the yachting like Fort-Mahon in Picardy. If you notice that along the coastal road, mills, now converted into a house, planted every two hundred meters. You will conclude that it must often be windy and you have won.It's May 1st and we arrived in Saint-Malo is disturbed by the labor parade. A small fifty people in my and 200,000 according to organizers, manifests itself in the wind and cold.
The ancient walls and Surcouf.
Another child of Saint-Malo: Jacques Cartier. Nod to Quebeckers who regularly frequent this blog. It's a shame the statue is quite modern and I think allows evil to imagine the inventor of Canada. This summer I attended the start of the race solo Quebec Saint-Malo. And here now looking toward the west, we should see the Canadian land.
In Saint-Malo, the streets are narrow and crowded houses. But at least, as in Mont-Saint-Michel, the effects of wind are not felt.
Some crepes & galettepancakes later we are in the cathedral where Jacques Cartier knelt before leaving for Canada. During the last war the building was badly damaged.
Yes we are in Britain
Return the sea had already left
