Flowers displayed on a table in front of a "creperie" (restaurant serving crepes) in Dinan.
Maybe you didn't know (unless you follow me on Twitter) but I was away again... This time I went to Brittany and stayed in Cancale. I also visited Dinan, Saint Malo, Dinard and of course Mont Saint Michel which is in Normandy.
I love this region. It is absolutely gorgeous. Let me show you a few pictures.
Feur de lin et Bouton D'Or, an antique dealer of buttons, laces, ribbons, etc. A stitcher's heaven!!! Inside it is like an old notions store.
Jacques Cartier's house. He is the one who discovered Canada.
A view of Saint Malo from Dinard at high tide.
The Mont Saint Michel (we did a 4-hour hike in the sand with a guide and it was fabulous!!)
Fort la Latte and the coast
Beautiful mansions like this one.
and charming cottages like this one...
Well, you see, it was really pleasant. Living in France is extraordinary as each region is very typical. Indeed, Brittany, Normandy, Alsace, Provence, Burgundy, the Alps, the Pyrenees, to name just a few, are VERY different from each other. And everything is at a reasonable distance.
BTW, go and visit Natalie's blog to see Burgundi where she lives!!! Gorgeous , too!)
I did stitch a little bit but didn't make much progress as I was outside visiting and hiking all day and tired in the evenings...
But, as I mentioned the Lady's Cabinet several times in my previous posts, here is a picture of my WIP.
I still have the written part of one side to stitch and the top! It won't be finished before school starts as I had planned but it won't be long... ;-)
This is almost the end of the summer break. I like this period as it is the beginning of the school year and like every beginning, it is full of hope and projects. And I wish to share them with you all along ;-)
Thank you again for all your lovely comments. They are really motivating and I'm happy to know that you stopped by...
Du grand Bleu !
