Fog then another spectacular day of sunshine
Camping St. Michel
Today we decided to take advantage, once again, of the gorgeous weather. It’s foggy and cold in the mornings but quickly burns off to glorious sunshine and temps in the seventies with a light breeze. We couldn’t have ordered it up better. We drove to St. Malo, a walled city right on the coast in Brittany. Our campground is located in Normandy and right on the border with Brittany. Along the way we saw three French deer (you can tell by how elegantly they leap) and multiple cobwebs on the farm fences glistening with dew.
Chuck was in heaven walking along the ramparts. The views were spectacular and we had a wonderful picnic on a stone bench up on the walls. What a great day. It even ended with Chuck’s favorite thing: dessert! We each had an ice cream and then we found a Ker-y-pom, traditional Breton shortbread biscuits with butter, honey, and an apple-pie filling. Yum.
We walked across the sand to this "island". Wouldn't want to get caught during high tide.

We've had fun with road signs. Many we just don't understand. One shows a car in a red circle with a line through it on the road we're driving on! We thought this one was great. I guess it's OK to go swimming in your car.
