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 ...

Today we traveled to Carnac, on the South Coast of Brittany, another pretty village. This town lies in the centre of the world's greatest concentration of megalithic sites. The region is full of neolithic menhirs, dolmens, cromlechs, tumuli and cairns (AKA standing stones!). The heaviest weighs 300 tonnes and they date back to at least 5000 years BC - which makes them ...
