Yesterday was DH's turn to pick our destination and we headed for the north coast. We started off in Roscoff not expecting to find a gorgeous little seaside town and harbor (so reminiscent of Anstruther and St. Andrews) complete with its own marine lab. Then we worked our way west. On the advice of the Rough Guide to Brittany & Normandy we headed to Brignogan-Plage and what it described as a 'gem of a beach.' Total understatement!
So we ate our picnic amid these gorgeous rocks and then hunted for shells on the perfect white-gold sand. Our son decided he had to go swimming. That lasted less than 1 second but by then he and DH were completely frozen!!
And what made this place even more spectacular was a restored village that wasn't in any of the guidebooks. Meneham.
It isn't in the guidebooks but it is glorious!!
