Winter is a great time of year to eat Oysters

The oyster capital of Brittany is Cancale – they serve oysters all year round – you can eat them straight from the producer sitting on the quay overlooking Mont St Michel

Beach rider

One of the girls staying at the gites last week had a dream to go horse riding in the surf on the beach. I arranged for her to have a 2 hour ride at a stables near St Brieuc at the Centre Equestre de Plerin. They are allowed to ride on the beaches after 7pm, and it was only possible on Friday, as earlier in the week the tides were too high in the evenings.

She spent one hour in the woods and one hour galloping across the sands on a deserted beach, accompanied by a dashing army horseman who wanted to practice his English with her! She said that it made it the best holiday she had ever had! (I’m thinking about treat myself to a ride there, too!)
