A peak on the far western edge of the Black Mountains. 1,083ft. Overlooks the Baie de Douarnenez to the south and the River Aulne to the north. Sacred in Celtic lore, the mountain is also the land of the korrigans and of the elves of Amorican popular belief and ...
We arrived late after a big day of travel. A pretty town rising on both sides from a river with foot and road bridges every 50 meters.
After our delicious lunch we ate light in an upstairs Creperie run by a Mother and son. Just the job, a carafe of wine and a savory and sweet crepe each.
As we were walking about 100 or so runners with head lamps passed us, off on some nighttime endurance run I suspect. Completely mad!
... Now clearly a tourist site with many french tourists taking advantage of the long weekend to visit without the hoards of Poms.
A picturesque stop and a break from inland visits, the remainder of the trip in France will follow the coast.
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.

... for Bill and me, and Joyce and Steven had foie gras. Desserts were chocolate fondant and hazelnut chocolate pastry. It was absolutely delicious.
Tomorrow is the last day that we can share with Bill and Joyce before the leave for Halifax on Sunday.
Again, I do not gave enough wifi strength to send photos. I will catch up later. Sorry!
For now,All the bestChuck
