... the path. I offer to take a photo of this family of 3, the wife and daughter seem enthusiastic, but the husband says "No!". Fine. I continue on my way. I walk for a good couple hours along the coast path. Very scenic. Then I make my way back to town. It starts to rain, I find shelter and wait for it to let up. I then find a nice bench to lie flat on and take a siesta. It's sunny and warm again, so peaceful. The ferry arrives again and we depart at 4PM. Tons more people walking ...
... to use debit. Finally it started pumping, but of course didn't fill the tank. Went inside to grab something, maybe to eat, but only got water. Then it started hailing. I stayed under the safety of the gas station roof until it let up. Brrrrrr. It's cold. Forgot to mention all the tolls I had to pay, like 5, 6 euros a piece. WTF, I've never seen such a thing.

Back at hotel base we looked for a place for dinner in the area, nut it was Sunday, and mostly anything other than a bar was closed. We had to settle for a warmed slice of quiche and a beer at a bar in Pont Aven. No plate or cutlery, just the quiche on a piece of aluminum foil!
So if you are planning to travel to small towns in France (and perhaps Europe) most restaurants will be closed on Sunday and Monday.
all the best
