I had sat the alarm for 08:00 this morning, but by the time we got away it was 09:30 and we had wasted at least an hour's daylight. Tomorrow, even though it is Sunday, we will be up at 07:00 and, I hope, away earlier. Or out for a walk, but the days are so short it is a pity to waste daylight.
We set the Satnav to take us to Saint-Brieuc, but decided not to go into the town itself. The first part of the trip we went across country, and then along a nearly motorway-standard N road, stopping for lunch at a service area. Our own lunch, I hasten to add, not what was provided by a café. Then we drove on, catching a glimpse of Mont Saint Michel in the distance, and up the coast to this town, Paimpol. We are in a very nice aire, nobody else around, with services. It cost €4, and there is free parking in the town, but we need services.
The Swan Whisperer went out for a walk and then we had a cup of tea before we walked into town and had dinner at a random, but very good, creperie. And then back, and more or less straight to bed, although we did put the heating on for ten minutes, and boiled the kettle for bottles and tea. He is now charging his phone and checking the sports results... Which I am so not interested in, but he persists in taking me anyway.
