Well, I never got around to talking about my weekend trip to Carnac back in…November, but as I’m heading back there tomorrow for the Easter holiday, I thought I’d introduce you to this pretty little town on le Golfe du Morbihan in Bretagne. A good friend from UW and I were graciously invited to stay with Anne-Marie and André in their summer home, close to the beach but far from the main roads.
Breakfasts were simple – confitures with fresh brioche from the boulangerie in la Trinité-sur-Mer, juice and big mugs of tea.
We picked up lunch at the fish market in la Trinité-sur-Mer for a veritable feast of langoustines and crab (!!!).
Unfortunately, come dinnertime I ate a few raw oysters that did not agree with my stomach (why I decided to give oysters another go, I don’t know!). I woke up early the following morning feeling perhaps as awful as I have ever felt, but took some medicine, made it back to Nantes in one piece and slept through my Monday classes. But despite this little hiccup (ha!), I would still have to say that I enjoyed the trip, though I think it goes without saying that when I visit this weekend, I’ll pass on les huîtres!
