La Baule, France . . . A Day at an Atlantic Seacoast Beach Resort

Monday was our last day in Brittany before heading back to Lyon and our last practices before Sunday's Division III Southern Conference Championship Game.

We opted to drive about an hour Northwest to the Atlantic seacoast resort beach city of La Baule.

La Baule is a five mile long crescent shaped, white sand beach on what is called the Côte d'Amour or Coast of Love.

It is one of the Atlantic coast's most fashionable resorts.

We were ready to blend in with the natives.

 OK, it is Official
We're LOST!

Driving these peaceful French
country roads was our reward

 Back in Nantes we were reminded
that today is Memorial Day in the USA

Time for dinner.

They do not cheat you on the Cidre
at the Crêperie Ste Croix

Great crepes too!

What the duck?

We've got to get a moat!

We really enjoyed our weekend in Normandy and Brittany. These are two great and historical areas of beautiful France that you really should visit.

A quick look at how the rest of our French Division III season is shaping up with only two games remaining on the 2012-13 schedule.
