Since then its been the usual round of housework, washing & ironing (Ugh!!) which always seem to mount up when you try to ignore them for a few days - so - Voila! Friday again!!!
Golfe de St Malo - the bay from the city walls or ramparts.
The bay is full of small islands, mainly uninhabited, and some very vicious rocks which makes for quite an interesting ferry docking!
The old fort,once used as a prison, which is cut off at high tide but reached quite easily across the sands when the tide is out
Hotel de Ville, or Town Hall, built into the walls.
A typical apartment block inside the walls. This was taken off the ramparts so no ground floor! Most of the buildings are like this, obviously some more ornate than others!
Pavement cafes around the square - quiet this weekend but filled with wall-to-wall tourists in the holiday season!
Just a little taster of our day out ! I suppose we should be grateful for at least one dry day!!!!
On a last little note - my latest CWD quilt blocks! These might have to last me a little while as we have decided to go away for a few days next week as a late Easter trip- I have been promising myself a visit to the Chateau de Versailles now that they have re-opened the Hall of Mirrors after a mammoth refurbishment and at least it will be one place that will be dry (I hope !!!!)
Top - Another Death : Pleasures of Sweet Home : Runaway Slave
Btm - 64 Pound Shell : At Last A Free Man : Last Letter Home
Top - Confusion & Turmoil : Misfortune
Btm - Surrender of Vicksburg : Visit to Town
These bring my total to around 50 blocks, so I think I can get away next week without feeling guilty and maybe even get on with something new in between !!!!
