The French Connection
We have been buried deep in rural France these last few days, sans Internet, sans everything. That is, until this morning when everything suddenly burst into life – a bit like rural French plumbing, rural Internet connectivity is just fine until it goes wrong.
I am not that fond of driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road in a right hand drive car but we negotiated St Malo to Foleux without incident, despite the gallons of water pouring from the heavens – more bad plumbing. It was worse the effort though – this is a heavenly, quiet retreat, tucked away on the banks of La Vilaine.
The winds have been high and the skies occasionally ominous these last few days but we are forecast high pressure tomorrow. There is every chance that the celestial plumbing will fix itself much like the Internet connection. We remain optimistic:

Many thanks and thanks for stopping by.
Fine series, Robin.
Many thanks Harrie, much appreciated
Great series! I do love the piebald horse 🙂
Thanks Sarah, he was quite a character, very inquisitive.
I used to ride a piebald when I was a kid so I have a real soft spot for them 🙂
Love the subtle tints on these and the horse is a beauty. Ah, rural France. I’ll probably be in those parts in the near future.
Many thanks Julie – pure blue skies this morning, things are looking up 🙂
Like the horse image and enjoy your time in France, MM 🍀
Thanks MM, rural France is looking at its best this morning 🙂
Oh, lovely images, Robin.
Especially the horse! I love the eye. The horse looks just like the horse in “Pippi Longstocking”. 🙂
And I say the same as MM; enjoy your time in France. 🙂
Many thanks Malin, we are having a grand time, busy doing nothing 🙂
We love the pace of life here, even slower than deepest Northumberland
All the best, R ❤
(I had to Google Pippi's horse – I agree)
Oh you were so close, please visit me when you’re “Lost in France” the next time :o) I agree the weather was awful, first some sun rays and some seconds later the niagara falls came down.
We are still here (Foleux) and the weather is so much better – how near are you?
approx. 90 kilometers, I think :o) shall I make a coffee?
Slightly outside our lazy range – another time I hope 🙂
Terrific set of images Robin! I especially love the horse! Gorgeous!
Many thanks Robyn – he has proved quite popular, I should go back and tell him 😉
j’adore la Bretagne… même sans internet! 🙂
Moi aussi ! ❤ 🙂
🙂 vive la Bretagne et vivent les Bretons! welcome to the club! ❤
So nice series. I especially like the last two. Love the look from the spotted horse.
Many thanks Bente – he looks a bit suspicious methinks 🙂
merveilleuses les photos, Robin. Keep having a lovely time.
Merci beaucoup Tish – weather much much better these last few days.
