Ready to head to Brittany?
On y va!
If you've been reading this blog for a little while,
you may remember when I went into a photo-taking frenzy chez nous
because we had signed up to a home exchange site, Trocmaison.
Well, shortly after creating our profile, we lucked out
& quickly agreed to exchange our apartment in Annecy
for the beach house belonging to a couple of teachers
on France's Atlantic coast.
I'll be honest: at first, I figured that the best part of the exchange
would surely be the incredibly catchy name
of the seaside village we'd be in:
Saint Michel Chef-Chef.
C'est impossible to tire of saying that name.
Keep saying it!
Another dozen times!

But once we arrived,
I saw that our little beach-side abode was small, comfy & charming.

|living room/dining room/kitchen all in one!|
But the best part?
In less than five minutes, we could walk to this:
And see this:
And beach-comb to our hearts' delight like this:
And gaze upon this:
As you can tell from the photos, it wasn't always sunny & warm.
In fact, most days we wore our windbreakers & hiking boots
& we got rained on quite often.
But you know what?
That's Brittany & I'm a West Coast girl.
It was just so wonderful to be so close to the ocean again.
No reason to be crabby about the weather!
