As I said in my last post, Maurice and I went north to Brittany for a short trip and started by stopping in a village called Rochefort en Terre which won a contest done on TV channel 2 as the “village préféré” in France as voted by actual French people. Each section of France put forth their favorite and then the vote was held. Rochefort en Terre was beautiful as you might expect. I took a ton of photos. Here are just a few of them.
