|This is l'Auberge de la Cour Verte, in Dol
de Bretagne, where we had a wonderfully hearty meal whose main dish consisted
of fresh steaks grilled over an open fire in the dining room.
|And here is the view of the cows outside of our window
at the métairie in Bouillante (between Dol-de-Bretagne and Epiniac).
|The Menhir du Champ-Dolent is one of the many monoliths
scattered around Brittany, indicating the Celtic roots of the area.
When we got out the car to take a look, we observed a guy walking around
the menhir taking energy readings with various simple instruments (divining
rods, among the ensemble). Cool!
|This is a fairly typical example of the Normand houses
found in the area. Not merely monuments to a forgotten time, there
are actually a good number of these dwellings that are lived in today.
