After coming back from Rennes we enjoyed dinner in the cockpit. Just in front of where we are moored there's a bandstand and in the evening around 30 or so people were old fashioned dancing until the late hours. it was really lovely to watch as it was people of all ages.
Friday we didn't do too much - mainly hung around the boat and completed chores. In the afternoon we ventured out for a while and found out it ...
... instantly of diners! They take lunchtime seriously.
We then walked to the city walls and admired the gardens below, and continued on in search of the port. Which turned out to be a narrow marina in a hot open square between tall terraces. Too hot - time to move on. We returned back into the walled part of town - a large preserved section of half timbered buildings, all tourist shops and restaurants and very busy, and ...
... were shutting but still managed to buy some seafood before the fish market closed. In the afternoon we went wandering around the town which was just lovely. There remains parts of the old town wall and ramparts, loads of half timbered houses etc. Just lovely.
We left le Trinite and headed for the Morbihan Gulf. We got there a little too early and had some tide against us at the entry but nothing too worrisome.
We spent sometime looking for a suitable anchorage - so many places are taken up by local moorings but we found something eventually.

... cycle around the Carnac alignments. The path led us through some lovely woods and passed lovely stone buildings / barns and cottages.
We also saw an ancient burial chamber dating back 4.500 years which was fully intact - amazing. Unfortunately unable to get good pictures of what is was like inside.
After our bike rides we wandered around the town and low and behold the fish market was still open - so we bought some more langustines and a lobster.
