Maurice and I recently made a quick three day trip to Brittany, the southern part mostly in what is called the Guerandaise, the area full of marshes where the famous salt is made. It is a truly beautiful part of France on the Atlantic Coast and we had a fabulous time. The day we arrived there was wind and rain which is very typical for the coast. It blew and rained so much that my umbrella broke a spoke, my rain coat turned from light purple to dark with water saturation, my hat was soaked and my glasses totally useless. The next two days, however, were wonderful with mild temperatures and sunshine. A perfect time to be there.
An old windmill on the side of the highway that once ground the flour used to make the famous crepes here. We had some and they were really good. Galettes are the ones made from buckwheat for savory fillings and crepes are the lighter ones used for sweet fillings.
