Monday-30th morning and we had a simple plan; walk to Courtoisville, browse a bit in the Carrefour Market, and then walk back on the digue (breakwater). The temperature was 13°C (55°F), a few scattered clouds, a lot of blue sky and a mild wind coming from the ocean. We walked to Courtoisville by the main street. Courtoisville is the name use for a neighborhood in Saint-Malo. On the way back we did walk on the digue.

Tuesday-31th we walked out of the Porte Saint-Louis and saw this massive 3 mast sail boat moored in the basin. Called the Sea Cloud Spirit, it is quite the ship. For more information about it click here; Sea Cloud Spirit.

After taking a couple of pictures, we then walked to the Rosarie Sainte Anne in Saint-Servan. The Rosarie is large rose garden and Saint-Servan is a neighborhood of Saint-Malo just south of our Intra-Muros. This is probably the 4th time we have been to the rosarie. Roses dominate the garden, but there are plenty of other types of flowers. The slide show will give you good idea of the garden.

After the rosarie, we walked back through Saint-Servan and stopped at their marché. We bought things for our dinner and then headed home.

Wednesday-1st and we took advantage of the great weather. We walked to the new Intermarché Super at 53 Avenue Aristide Briand which is 2.5 kilometers (1.55 miles) from the apartment. We completed our shopping, walked to the gare (train station) and took a bus back to Intra-Muros.

Wednesday afternoon was spent watching our friends play boules in the lovely sunshine.

The only real excitement was, when once again, we could not find Sophie the cat. After searching our small apartment we came to the conclusion that the cat had outsmarted us once again. So, we had to back track all our movements for the afternoon and finally realized that in the 2 seconds it took Sandy to hang a shirt in the armoire the cat had snuck in and was taking a nap.

THURSDAY-2nd we walked the perimeter of the Intra-Muros by following the ramparts. The ramparts, which were built in the 17th century, are not quite a complete perimeter.

FRIDAY-3rd had showers in the forecast, so we took the bus and headed to the La Madeleine center, the mall. Actually there were a few things we needed from the Carrefour Hypermarché which were only available there. The bus trip is about 20 minutes each way. There are two bus routes go the way we need so, we only have to wait about 10 minutes for a bus and then we leave the driving to the chauffeur (which means driver in French).

SATURDAY-4th and it is a marché day in nearby Rocabey. The marché was very crowded but Sandy was able to get the items for this weekend; mushrooms, green beans, olives and two chicken cordon bleu.

The highlight of the afternoon was a beautiful rainbow after a short shower.

SUNDAY-5th with storms in the forecast we are pretty much apartment bound today. The rain storms this weekend have been quite drenching, but very scattered.
