Meandering through the cobbled lanes lined with patisseries, to the sound of espresso cups clinking and the smell of freshly baked bread. La Trinite-Sur-Mer in Brittany encapsulates everything we love about France.
We would cycle into the village in the morning and join the snaking queue of local villagers on the flour dusted warm cobbles for our fresh bread and croissants to enjoy on the beach.
Post War Southern Brittany was re-built to become an urban retreat for the modern Parisian. As we breeze past you can’t help but imagine effortlessly chic French ladies opening the shutters of their opulent beach houses that peek through the pine forests that line the coastal paths.
Renowned for the fantastic sailing it offers; the backdrops of the towns are lined with tightly packed yacht masts reaching high up to the clouds. Beautiful Creperie’s overlooking the harbours offering fresh seafood and Crepe’s for the children to enjoy after a day of jumping in the sand and exploring rock pools. We would indulge ourselves before we would cycle home through the sunset, skin tight from the sea air and prepare for the following day full of the same. Perfect family summer time together.
This past Monday was National Watermelon Day – did you join the trend and have a slice of watermelon or two? If not, here are some trendy watermelon goodies that are as sweet as the real thing. Watermelons have been popping up this summer on everything from apparel to accessories and home decor, and with another month of summer left there is still plenty of time to enjoy this sweet and refreshing fruit.
Fun fact, did you know, watermelons are over 90% water?
We are basking in the warm sun, taking dips into turquoise waters, and wishing for an endless summer.
