I left a sunny warm Théhillac in some haste, to arrive safely at Brest.
Later we went and plucked plums in the rain, for jam making, then had a long walk around the port with it’s many shops and restaurants.
I noticed the commercial part of the port is reviving.
Brest, home of the dashing ‘Goélette’ La Recouverance of Brest, a replica ‘privateer’, ‘lettre de marque’ vessel, an armed schooner.
Joel taught me many new French words, mostly sea faring terms.
It took less time than expected, 2.5 hrs.
Yet again Marie Therese produced a superb lunch, a lasagne with salmon with a magic sauce I don’t understand accompanied by fresh bread, fresh green salad and an interesting wine provided by Joel from the cote de Rhone.
This eveing’s light meal is accompanied by a rare Castel de Brames (Gaillac) red wine, made traditionaly from some of the most ancient grape stock in all France.
