We heard many different languages spoken there.

Historical Postcard of Hotel Cour du Corbeau in Strasbourg

We have stayed at the Hotel Cour du Corbeau in Strasbourg a couple of times. Just a couple of weeks ago, I ran across this historical postcard, showing the building in its former stage.

It might be safe to assume this postcard is from around 1930, because this was the year the Cour du Corbeau was listed as a historic monument.

Rental Home ‘Maison Bleue’ in Josselin, Brittany

We had a lovely rental home in Josselin. It is the one at the end of the lane with the blue door, hence the name ‘Maison Bleue’. It is a typical Brenton stone cottage, and is fully renovated and well equipped.

The first thing I did, after we arrived from Cancale, was to water the flower boxes in front of the house. A neighbor lady observed me doing this, gave me a thumbs up, and called across the lane ‘C’est très gentil!’

We had 30C (86F) almost every day during that week, and so watering the plants in front and back became a daily thing to do, which I like doing. I also enjoyed sitting in this little courtyard in the back on most mornings and evenings.

Over the years, we have also learned to bring an electric fan on every trip.

An Afternoon Visit to St. Malo, France

While vacationing in Cancale, we drove over to St. Malo. It was well worth it! I’ll let the photos speak for themselves this time.
