Photo a Day: Day Two Hundred & Thirty Six
Wednesday 24th September
Its only the second day of college and already I feel like the glass of wine was necessary. We’ve been given so much new information over the last couple of days because the system has changed that my brain seems to have gone into overload. I’m not too worried because I think I’ll have my head around it soon but lets just say I was happy to see a glass of wine this evening!!

I noticed these wall paintings on my way home from town this afternoon. I’ve always been quite partial to a marvel superhero so these caught my attention, however this was not the only reason. I have often walked past this same wall on several occasions and never noticed these images, which makes me question whether I really do have bad observation skills or whether they are newly painted. Either way I thought they were pretty cool.

As it didn’t take a lot of time to travel to St Malo, which is where we were catching our ferry, we decided to investigate the place. Whilst wandering around, I couldn’t help noticing this wonderful display in one of the arts and crafts stores. I’m particularly taken with the pencil sharpener and pencil shavings. I think this is a really creative display and would make me want to enter the store.

Happy Birthday to my dad! It just wouldn’t be a holiday without having a least one ice cream and it became a sort of holiday tradition to have ice-cream on birthdays whilst away. I must admit the French manage to do very good ice creams as well as patisserie items. This was a sort of double chocolate with nuts embedded into the chocolate. Utterly delectable.

And were back to the puds! This one deserved a photo though for just being far too delicious. A French take on a lemon meringue, it was kind of like a cross between a meringue and a cheesecake. A crumbly biscuit base topped by a lemon flavoured mousse and three drops of meringue. Pure perfection in one dessert.

As I got told it was officially the start of autumn today, it seemed fitting to take a photo of this pretty autumn leaf. I absolutely love autumn/winter, so the fact that the leaves are starting to fall off the trees and change colour really appeals to me. I really like the different tones within this leaf, it almost looks like its on fire.

Back to reality. Whilst in the middle of unpacking after arriving back home, I found the collection of shells I picked up from the beach, luckily they are all empty and none of them are homes of hermit crabs (I checked). They will go nicely with various other shells I have acquired from other holidays and be a lovely reminder of this one.

Unfortunately this was technically our last day of the holiday before travelling back home the following day. We had one last amble to the beach as the weather was still gloriously sunny and I couldn’t help but take a photo of the sandals I have practically lived in for two weeks. This was taken whilst sitting on the sea wall, looking out and watching the waves crashing in.

Today we went on a visit to Vannes, a town close by to where we were staying. This was a truly typical picturesque French town, with olde world style buildings and a delightfully eclectic mix of French locals. We spent a lot of time sat on a bench in this square people watching before exploring the rest of the town.

Popped off to another chateau this afternoon and whilst peering over the edge of one of the towers I noticed these pretty little wild flowers growing out of the side of the wall. I thought it made quite an interesting image with the rest of the gardens below being blurred so that you get the full impact of the height and the prettiness of the flowers in the foreground.
