We are home from our magical holiday in Brittany.
We stayed in the beautiful Breton house that my sister Pip and her partner Euros are renovating. Pip was with us for the first week which was great fun. That is Pip cutting the hedge.
My brother also lives in Brittany not far from Pip so we were able to visit him frequently and Neil spent a day helping him bring in the bales of hay to the barn (I on the otherhand enjoyed a peaceful walk to Bon Repos along the canal).
The house nestles within an acre of peaceful woodland and we were woken by the dawn chorus and the peck peck peck of a woodpecker.
Gouarec Wood is close to the house and we spent a hot afternoon walking through the wood and back along the path.
It was lovely to escape the heat of the day walking the dappled shade of the woodland.
The area is known for the hundreds of different species of moss and the ground and trees were carpeted by it.
