A pretty, picturesque Breton village. Again with the pretty little houses and the beautiful church. This time I lit a candle and said the French prayer they had posted there. We also got to taste some delicious traditional Breton crepes - ham and cheese with an egg on top for the main course and butter and sugar with blackberry jelly for dessert. I wasn't a fan of the Breton cider, which tasted too much like beer for me to like it much. Sort of a combination of beer and apple juice. We also went further away and climbed a small mountain (I do mean small - about 300 m) called Roc Trevezel. We walked up sat for a little while, and walked down, so it's not really worth its own entry.

St. Tregonnec is an old and beautiful Breton church we visited, with beautiful decoration and carving. They had a candle by the tabernacle as a sign that the Blessed Sacrament was there, so my friend and came into that area, which had two little booklets of meditations for Adoration, a few chairs, and a sign saying "Place of Prayer and Silence: Please Respect". So we sat down for a few minutes of Adoration, and suddenly the church tour guide comes up behind us with a large group describing things in a loud voice and the most barking, unmusical French I've ever heard. I turned around and glared a few times, but no one even looked ashamed or uncomfortable. After we had been interrupted twice by a member of our group with a pointless comment and then the guide came up directly behind us, rather than 15 or so feet behind and turned to the side as before, we gave up. You'd think that in a working church with "place of prayer - please respect" signs, a guide who seems to have been working for the church would have more respect than that.
