#CountryKids: Postcard from Brittany Number 1

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

It really seems a lifetime away but here are some of the fab things we got up to in Brittany (one of which was not the basic squat loos on the autoroute!):


Watching sun rise over the English Channel


Giant hot dogs for a belated breakfast


Intriguing sculptures at motorway stop

Played table tennis


Had fun on the waterslides


Watched bizarre French/English entertainment
Played on the beach at Carnac


Swam in the Atlantic Ocean


Looked in rock pools


Discovered that steak hache et frites was burger and chips


Ate a few galettes


Drank some cider


Jumped waves at sunset

And that was just the first couple of days! More to follow...

  10. Looks like you had a great time. Is it me or does the cup of cider look like tea? I think I could handle drinking cider like tea lol. Not fancy just a burger when you ask for steak?

    Ooh lucky you - I loved our holiday in France this year so am very jealous! It looks like you had a smooth crossing and the sunrise is stunning. Lots of great snaps of outdoor fun, and I love the black and white one of your daughter. I'm looking forward to the next installment from your holiday - thanks for sharing with Country Kids.
