The final leg to St Malo was only an hour and a half (with no tolls !!!) and we had identified a lovely little aire “Les Ilots” which was right by the beach, a 5 minute walk to the village centre & with a bus into St Malo right outside.
We were there by midday, popped the kettle on, had a late brekky then caught the 1:15pm bus into St Malo old town. We bought a little card with 2 adult returns – for the bargain price of 6 euros !!! So €1.5 for a 37 minute journey – bargain !!! It was gorgeously sunny and warm and we spent the afternoon strolling around the city walls then around the familiar streets popping into the odd tat-shop…
We went into Saint Vincent Cathedral and it’s the first time (this entire 6 weeks I think) where there were REAL candles to light (as opposed to “put in your euros and we will set going a cheap, nasty, orange flickering electric light in a candle holder”…)
There was also a full-on fun fair just in front of the harbour and (as we are now a couple of oldies) we both agreed that we felt ill just looking at some of the rides (Dave watched one particular ride intently convinced somebody would “up-chuck” at the end and was most disappointed when nobody did !!!)
