Left Dinan this morning after cleaning the flat. We were quite happy as the sun was out again after a rainy day yesterday. First off we headed for a little place called Lannion It's about 95 K's north west of Dinnan. It wasn't a spectacular looking place but interesting to see all the same. From there we headed south along the coastline (for a little while anyway) to Morlaix. The most impressive thing about Morlaix is the railway arch bridge built in 1861-63. It is 63 meters tall and 300 meters long. We picked a little bar/ restaurant in the old town to have lunch at. It was only tiny. Downstairs was packed so they sent us upstairs and we were lucky enough to get the last table. The food was excellent. We each had Beef bourginone, desert and water (no wine) for 23 Euros. After lunch we had a bit more of a stroll around town before we left for a little place called Le Faou. All it really was is an inlet a church and a few houses. Tiny as. From there we drove on to Locronan which would have to be one of the nicer places we visited so far. All the buildings are built of local granite but the style seems to be different. Certainly a place to visit with a camera. It would be even nicer in summer with all the vines in bloom. From there we drove on to our B&B stay for the night located on an old pig farm in middle of nowhere. The hosts were very friendly and all the breakfast food was home cooked.
