De retour de Quimper

It was a good week away! Thank you for all your comments during VDP's break! Starting from the top: pretty nice evening skies in Quimper, glorious morning on the sandy Atlantic beach in Sainte-Marine, good moments shared with friends, like having buckwheat crêpes with cider, the swelling waves in Fouesnant, a night visit to my old friend Abeille-Bourbon (the high sea emergency tow vessel) in Brest, taking the time to read, enjoying traditional Breton music in front of Saint-Corentin cathedral or Mozart and Bach inside the cathedral... and a gorgeous full moon!

Ce fut une bonne semaine ! Merci pour vos commentaires durant les vacances de VDP ! Il y eut de fort jolis cieux à Quimper, une glorieuse matinée à la plage à Sainte-Marine, de bons moments à table avec les amis, la houle à Fouesnant, une visite nocturne à ma vieille amie l'Abeille-Bourbon à quai à Brest, la lecture, les bourdons des cornemuses du Bagad du Festival de Cornouaille devant la cathédrale Saint-Corentin, Mozart et Bach à l'intérieur de la cathédrale... et une belle pleine lune !

Looks like you had a busy week of relaxation. Except the rough seas undoubtedly were not relaxing.

Your side of the Atlantic looks much more inviting than ours, this is a wonderful sequence, all are great!!

Traditional Breton music and Bach? I would love both.

Positively idyllic. We don't get much of that here in the center of North America but we get our fill when we visit Dave's place in Tamarindo.

Oh my Ciel, sounds like the perfect break, your photos are wonderful but are making me realise just how long it's been since I've had one of these totally relaxing breaks.
