Sunday Drive...

 28/11/2012

Bonjour mes amis!

How's everything going?  Still eating leftover turkey?  We don't have any leftover turkey, but I did make a nice Chicken and Rice Soup last night.  This is always a hit with our family.  It's just that time of year, isn't it?

Well, let's continue on and let me show you a little more of France.  After a wonderful weekend in the St. Malo area with my parents, it was time to make our way back to Orléans.

This is always a fun sight for us in Europe...




 It was a cool day, so we didn't mind being crammed together in the back seat...such a fun trip!


We spent a little time in the coastal village of Dinard...


The view back to St. Malo!

More St. Malo and the Ramparts!

Jewelius and his Grandpa!

Okay...it was cold, but not THAT cold!





Swimming anyone?
Time for Lunch, so we found a Creperie on our way to the next Village we would visit.  Crepes are very popular in the North of France!





Very nice lunch!


This was Jewelius' plate, complete with Seafood!
After lunch...can you see the Storm brewing?
The Creperie was just down the street from the Beach!

How's this for a City Office?
Next stop...Dinan, another walled city!

Dr. J always loves to go in Cathedrals with beautiful Stained-Glass Windows.  Well, it was raining during our visit to Dinan, so we popped into...

La Basilique Saint-Sauveur...





Of course, I was awed by the front doors!
 ...and afterward, look what we got to view when it stopped raining...




Time to get out for a little hike below the Aqueduct...




...and the views from on top of the Aqueduct...



 
...and the Ramparts...

Dinan was quite a picturesque city!

Headed back to Orléans now...thanks for letting me share this with you!

Have a "Jewel" of a day!
Jan
