Bois de Gouarec

As the Other Half has started up Breton Blog Renovation to document the more technical sides of the renovation (off-grid electric systems, lime rendering, gravity fed water heating systems etc) it means that I can concentrate on other aspects of life in Brittany. I intend to document the local area, day trips, local customs, food etc... starting with a wander through the woodlands beside the cottage.. Bois de Gouarec

The path up into the forest
An interesting shelter
View over towards my brother's place

Back onto the canal towpath
... towards the cottage

The fireplace in the barn is finished and rendered :)

I think it looks great! 

Next? stairs/log burner/insulation/rendering kitchen/flooring barn... I feel we've taken a big step forward as there isn't any heavy building work left to do :)

French Food ... stamps

I was wandering around the Fete du Lac at Lac de Guerledan the other week and came across these lovely stamps... each one with a different French national dish on.... how pretty!

em... I don't normally collect stamps... ;)
