Port Navalo, France

 On my last visit to Brittany, I returned to Vannes.  The year before I had tried to stay in a bed and breakfast however the one I chose was fully booked.  This time I  was in luck, Maison de la Garenne had space.  The Madame was a lovely lady, very friendly and full of information.  She suggested to me that I take a day trip out to Port Navalo on the Gulf of Morbihan.  I spent my day around the Gulf in little towns.  Unfortunately I did not have the time to take a ferry around the Gulf as I was returning to Paris that evening.
 I must say that I truly enjoyed my day on the Gulf.  One of the reasons was because of a purse I purchased.  The purse is truly gorgeous and really only cost me a little bit of money.  It is one of those finds that everyone comments on and I tell them that I purchased it in a little store somewhere in France.  I love being on the water and my entire day was spent along the Gulf.  In Port Navalo, I strolled through the town and was utterly delighted to find these homes.

 There is something to be said for blue shutters and doors and lace curtains.  I must confess that I spent my time peeking into the various backyards.  There were all sorts of finds behind the gates.
At some point I bought myself a baguette and pastry and sat along the water enjoying my lunch.  Should I ever return to Brittany I would definitely make sure that I had time to take a ferry around the gulf.

What a gorgeous area. I love the different blues of the shutters and doors. How nice to have a souvenir bag to remind you of your day- I love souvenirs like that- they're the best sort of souvenir.

Beautiful photos of the window shutters and doors. It's wonderful to explore the lesser known areas of France. Thanks for sharing your experience on this post.

I do love Brittany, though my time there was short. I wish I had stayed here! It's lovely!

Wow! I've always loved French shutters. Is it just me or are the shutters in Brittany painted a deeper color of blue than the rest of the country? Hahaha! Anyway, it must have been a lovely trip. I hope I could go there too, one day. Thank you so much for sharing the lovely pictures! Wishing everyone all the best!
