Day 26 Wednesday. St. Malo πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

sunny 34 °C

We left the the compound of Mont Saint Michel this morning and drove to Saint Malo. There we walked the ramparts of this medieval city. Oh my gosh what views. If the smell of the ocean didn't hit you the amazing blues of the water surrounding this town certainly would tell you you were on the ocean. There is a huge bay which is home to a very large marina, a ferry dock, dry docks and large ocean going ships, sandy beaches, small islands which are still home to old forts and lookouts. The ocean breezes kept us relatively cool until we descended down into the old city. There we baked amid tall old buildings, narrow streets and shops galore. We ate at a CrΓͺperie and of course had a beer. Been doing a lot of that lately in these temperatures! Gin has now succumbed to the plague the guys picked up on the ship and I am trapped in the car with three people coughing and hacking. Ron only got the cough and has not been too sick. Gin has a wretched sore throat which is how Dennis started. Two more days! We had a lovely time in St. Malo and decided to head back towards Paris. We drove the highways for awhile and then headed back into the pretty farm country and stopped for the night in a medieval village called Do Front. We are staying in an old charming French Hotel. It has a Brassiere connected to it and we ate dinner in the back garden. The rooms are small with no A/C and it was 34C when we arrived. Beer again to quench the thirst along with gallons of water. We are still having fun and while we are looking forward to more civilized temperatures and a few home cooked meals we will be sorry to see our adventures come to an end. We could not however afford to eat out in Europe much longer. Tomorrow we head back into Paris and will stay at a B&B near to the airport. Hopefully it will not reach the 38C predicted πŸ”†πŸŒžπŸ˜₯πŸ˜…πŸ˜“πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸΊ 🍺🍻🍺🍻🍺🍻🍺
