St Malo, France


St. Malo , France, an old walled city on the Brittany Coast,  has so much to offer:
 A lovely harbor,



 Stunning homes,


Beaches



Ramparts encircling the old city and the old city within the walls.



What is he pointing to?   The sea?   England?  The New World?



  Or maybe to this cute little Bistro just inside the ramparts. 



Actually the statue is that of the  swashbuckling corsair Robert Surcouf (hero of many daring 18-century raids on the British navy), eternally wagging an angry finger over the waves at England .

After walking the ramparts, we strolled through the Old City.


The  cathedral boasted beautiful stained glass.




A small square  was blooming  with color.




And a few were napping in the Sunshine!



Until next time, Honey

  6. St. Malo is one of my favorite places ever. Your first photo shows the area where we stayed.
    I thought that statue might be Jacques Cartier, who sailed twice from St. Malo to Canada, in 1534 and 1535, but I checked our photos and it seems to be someone else.
    We also saw people sleeping in the sun in St. Malo. I'd love to return there some day.
