Belle-Isle or Belle Ile. This is my destination for the day. I grab breakfast downstairs which includes cereal with orange juice, my fav. Then I'm off. With only my camera and scarf. Takes about an hour to make it to Quiberon. I find parking next to the casino and then walk to the ferry terminal. A few other people are also buying tickets. I attempt to purchase mine.

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
