I am finally back in Brittany, after a few long months away.
And what do you know, they sent a parade to welcome me back! I took these photos right out of my living room window:
Perhaps the parade was not just for me. It was our town’s local festival: Baden en fête, complete with traditional dancing, bagpipes, and of course cidre and crêpes.
A visit to Brittany would of course not be complete without some hiking on the coastal paths. Just the sight of the white and red marks of the grande randonnée made me happy.
And how did I get to Brittany? Driving — with my new French license! Did you read my account of taking the written exam and the driving exam last fall? It required one last trip to the préfecture on Boulevard Ney in the 18th arrondissement, but I finally have my license in hand.
Get ready for many more Brittany posts this summer!
