Last week we went to Mont St. Michel just north of us here in France. This is one place that I really loved.  Very magical. It is entirely built on a big hill.  The medival streets are still intact.  Many tourist shops and restaurants.  We at one with a view [...]

Last week I went to Carnac here on the north west coast of France.  I hadn't heard of Carnac the place.  When I heard it the first time I thought my friends were talking about the Johnny Carson skit he used to do. Well, Carnac is an amazing place.  It [...]

Today is Bastille Day here in France.  On 14 July 1790 there was a huge feast and official event to celebrate the uprising of the short-lived constitutional monarchy in France and what people considered the happy conclusion of the French Revolution.  People ran down the streets naked in order to [...]

Last night everyone on the Rue (French for street) invited us to a BBQ here in Rennes France.  I had the most fun of any 4th of July party in my life. They shut down the street.  They had to get permission from the major of Rennes to do this. [...]

We drove north from Rennes and visited Cote de Granit Rose (Coast of the rose granite) in northern France.  The drive up was interesting in that we got lost twice in small villages.  The road system can be a little confusing because of the sheer number of roads and roundabouts. [...]
