Céaux, Normandie

I left Brest this morning, it was overcast and a light rain. I took the country roads and drove a scenic route, along the coast as much as possible.

I found a little town on the GPS and drove there. I drove to the little town and turned onto a little road and seen this place! Now, why was I excited? Kouign Amann! It is a pastry in Brittany. Layered butter/flour pastry. It is very rich.

This Kouign Amann is not the one from the picture above, I found this one yesterday while south of Brest. It is huge. I have been nibbling on it this evening while processing photos and writing my blog. It caramelizes some along the bottom of the pastry… yum…

Pain au chocolat : Chocolate bread… it is a pastry with chocolate filling. This one was okay… I have had better.

I found these yesterday morning also, these were very good. Pastry type cookie with filling, Nutella and dulce de leche caramel… very good.

Quiche… Mmmm

Nice cheeses! tasty.

The little shop I visited today had these too. They are very good. Moist, delicate and tasty.

When visiting the lighthouse earlier, I saw this and had to laugh. The urinals are visible from outside where I am.

I love the houses around here.

I love the stonework… Wonder what the R value of stone is?

After visiting the little shop this morning, I visited the little church. This is across the street from the church.

Stained glass at the church.

The church tower. I like the gothic style.


The gargoyle on the church. I like it!

I need one for my house. I am going to have to learn stone cutting.

The apostles at the church entrance.

The other six apostles.

These were placed around the church.

The little organ in the church.

I like the door.

The little graveyard in the church yard.

A little window in the church.

The glass from the inside.

This is why one has to be inside to see the glass! It is beautiful!

This is the little church I visited.

As I drove along the coast, I stopped here. It was a nice view of the surrounding area.

The Britany coast.

The clouds broke as I got to the coast. I seen a rainbow. Tide basin and a village in the far distance. Nice.

A large country home.

Little roadside cross with saints. This one was different from the others I have seen.

Looking out from the overlook.

As I drove along the coast, I am amazed at how high the tides will rise.

I would think 10 feet rise in ocean tides?

I found Saint Michel!

Every time I see a car wash I laugh. Lavage…

The little graveyard in the church yard.
