My alternative route “home” to my little eco-cottage in the Orne Department of Normandy is by the Plymouth/Roscoff route. This is especially handy if I have been spending time in my spiritual home in Cornwall or with my son in Exeter.
When I take this route back, I have a longish drive through Brittany and Normandy to my stamping ground at St. Aubert. I would vastly prefer the route from Plymouth to St. Malo but that seems to run only once a week in the winter; however the French roads are generally quieter than the busy, long slog from the West Country to Portsmouth and the ferry to Caen. During that run, my temptation, is a stop for tea and cake in Dorchester with its Thomas Hardy connections and nice teashops, on route to the somewhat depressing M270.
This page is called “Brittany – just passing through”, and has images from some fairly arbitrary stops on my route home.
Maybe sometime soon, I will spend a few days on route, and take some shots of places like Quimper and other medieval gems. Yes, I have – see links below
