#BallardNormandie – Day 3


The breakfast food photo theme continues – this morning croissants and jam with hot chocolate – long live breakfast!

ce matin, croissants et confiture avec chocolat chaud! Vive le petit déjeuner!

Visit to the market in Vire

Shopping for lunch at the le marché de Saint Hilaire. The market was full of delights, as we can see from the photos! Food included ham, melon, cheese, chips, pancakes and sweets: in no particular order!

Jambon, melon, fromage, frites, crêpes et bonbons

The town of Avranches

The group then explored the town of Avranches and had a chance to practice their map reading skills…in French! While the girls are storming ahead and first on top of the ramparts, the boys are pretending to be rock stars (think Abbey Road!)

Map reading skills and rock stars…


French evening and quiz (with fancy dress!)

We returned to our gîtes and changed into our fancy dress outfits (as seen below!). Our French evening continues with more swimming and more football!


Visiting France would not be a visit without sampling yet more of the local cuisine… this time SNAILS!
