Giacometti Exhibition, Landerneau – France Day 6

posted in: France, Home | 3

After visiting Ploudiry, La Martyre, and Pencran Churches and feeling increasingly ill, it was time for a little lunch in Landerneau. And I regret that we did not explore – on the other hand the Galettes at the Crêperie du Pont were … Continued

Pencran Church came next on a very grey and wet morning. Apparently there has been a religious building on the site since the 14C. The current Church of Notre Dame, Pencran, dates from the 1500s. The Calvary of 1521 at the entrance was startling against … Continued

The sun shone this morning – we were promised a whole day of sunshine – and set off to walk on the moorlands of the Monts d’Arrées, a 7km Circuit de Roc’h Bichoureu guided by the excellent Wendy Mewes. We extended the walk to include Roch’h … Continued

Walking around Huelgoat – France Day 4

posted in: France, Home | 0

The day dawned reasonable and so we set off to walk around Huelgoat. But first a coffee, and in the bar we picked up a leaflet and set off with said leaflet and Carte de Randonnée 0617OT. It was tricky – we should … Continued
