Just a quick post to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a very Peaceful and Pieceful New Year!
Just a few pictures to share with you of our brief stay in Brittany on the way to UK.
This was the view from our hotel bedroom in Vannes on the south coast of Brittany.
Having booked through a last minute website you usually get one of the least nice rooms but the helpful receptionist told us she had upgraded us and I could see why when I saw this stunning view.
Unfortunately it was wet so we saved sightseeing in Vannes for another trip and drove on to Josselin which has a very beautiful old centre. Fortunately the rain had stopped by then but it was still very grey.
Since we have been here in Taunton we have mostly been shopping and meeting up with friends and family. Earlier this week we met one couple at Dunster Castle. The castle is run by the National Trust and evenings during December they open the house for a few hours. The rooms are decorated as they would have been in times past, we were given a glass of sherry on arrival and there was music and singing provided by two ladies - one playing harp and the other a flautist. While we were there, there were no children around so all the adults had great fun with jingle bells and clappers!
This is a picture I just managed to get of the castle before it got dark.
Have a lovely Christmas.
