This is the first entry since my computer crashed...I am now having to re-type each journal as I get to an internet cafe...imagine, no spell check !!!
After a devasting evening last night with my computer giving me fits, we started out this morning for a day trip out a little closer to the coast. We drove to Dinard from Dinan (about 15 miles). Leaving Dinard, we headed west to a little village of Saint Jacu-de-lamer. As we approached the main street, it was very apparent that they were having a street market. I think the whole of France was invited, as it was full and getting fuller the closer we got into the village. With everyone parking on the side of the main street, it was almost impossible to meet another vehicle coming towards you. Fortune was looking our wqay, as I was able to slip right into one of those little sp[ots so we could walk up the remaining 3 blocks to the market. We were4 looking for something to make a picnic lunch. As we walked all throught the streets and checked out all the wares of the vendors, we finally found a small grocery store that filled our needs. Now to get to "Bumble Bee". Making a "U" Turn we headed out for a castle/fortress called Fort la Latte. We thought we were going to be the only people there as there just wasn't any traffic going our way on this tiny road. What a surprise we had waiting for us when we pulled up to the parking lot. It was jammed... WE did fina a spot we could slip into. Putting everything into the backpack, we started our trek of about 1/2 mile to the castle. Fort la Latte is located out on the very end of a pointe, over-looking the Atlantic Ocean. It is sitting on a solid rock base with the waves coming at all sides. The wind wasd blowing pretty good, but we found a spot out of the wind and overlooking the castle to enjoy our very "French" lunch of baguette, cheese, ham, and half bottle of rose. Getting back to the campgrond, we had a couple from Great Britain over for a glass of wine. A very nice couple and we look forward to seeing them again... Tomorrow...moving on southbound
