Brittany Day 3

So we woke up to the sound of tractors and cows. I was up and running by 5am, it was amazing opening the back door of the Gite on to an amazing water meadow. This was to become the routine for the holiday, wellington boots and hoody on over the PJs and out into the morning light with Ruby. Hubby was up and cooking breakfast.

After breakfast hubby went off to the village to get whatever was needed, while I made up a picnic lunch for us all.

On his return we packed up the car and headed off for the Forest of Fougères. We were so lucky it was dry and sunny.

We found the entry into the Forrest without too much trouble, the sun was shining through the trees and dappling the pathways.

Following the sound of voices we emmerged from the thick Forrest to a large clearing with grass, sand and a lake!

It was beautifully layed out with picnic tables and seats, there was a school party of children there and they were friendly and made a fuss of Ruby.

We had our picnic in the hot sun on the beach by the lake which was very pleasant. Then we set off on a circular walk.

We spent a couple of hours wandering through the woods and to my delight we found a Dolman. Dolman Pierre Courcoulée It was a magical find, I could feel the sense of what had been there before. A feeling of calm and warmth, of history. There was no traffic noise, just the birdsong and the calls of the school children in the distance.

We walked along the paths feeling the presence of those who would of travelled this way hundreds of years ago.

Hubby pointed out all of England would of been like this once.

A beautiful day out.
