|Les Sables d'Or beach in Brittany|
While spending our Summer in California this year, we are reminiscing over our other coastal trips of Summer's past. Our friend Hélène Renaut once took us to her Summer house in Erquy, on the eastern edge of the Bay of St-Brieuc, in the Brittany region of France. It was magical. Here are some photographs of our day trip to several beaches along Les Sables d'Or, golden sands, as well as our welcome meal of freshly caught Mackerel.
