France – Day 6

A day trip to Dinan. Everybody was up nice and early – not. Everybody is still enjoying not having to wakeup to alarm clocks and the normal daily routiine.

Dinan is a very picturesque town in Brittany. Beautiful walls, buildings and a weekly market with fantastic fresh produce. The market was our first port of call.  All of the boys managed to spend some money here. Ben bought another wallet,







Daniel his first market leather belt.




Simon bought a T shirt with a suitable caption on it.







But the best buy of the day from the market must be Bruce’s leather hat which Nicki reckons makes him look like a pimp.







The next stop after the market was the local pottery merchant where Bruce bought a  beer mug and some very nice beakers. Hungry after all of the shopping we headed to a local taverna for Crepes and paninis. This was followed by ice creams and sorbets from a local ice cream parlour.

Having shopped and eaten we walked back to the car via the narrow streets and a very steep cobbled hill. Watching Simon walk down the hill was entertaining as his shoes couldn’t get a grip on the wet pavement and he skidded and slid his way down the slope.

The rest of the day was spent eating good food and drinking very good drink.
