It wasn't exactly a dry day and it took a bit of persuading to get Doug out the door.
Everyone knows about French cheese. There are hundreds of varieties. Our Saturday market in Saint-Renan has at least 6 cheese vendors. Three of them have selections rivaling the Les Amis du Fromage shop in Vancouver; and they are in trailers that they move from market to market each day!
We've uploaded a bunch of new images to Flickr over the past couple of days:
There are a few other miscellaneous images that didn't make it into one of the sets above - dig around in the photostream if you're interested...
The time zone may be weird, but we had a beautiful, sunny 20°+ day today, that made the beginning of our winter training for PBP 2007 pretty easy to start.
According to Google Maps Saint-Renan is located at about 48° 26' N, 4° 37' W. Only a little south of Vancouver's 49°+ N, but 2/3 of the way to the western edge of the GMT time zone, even though we are in the Central European time zone, 1 hr ahead of GMT...
In kilometers it's about 10,000 (taking great circle distances from Vancouver to MontrÃ©al, MontrÃ©al to Paris, and adding in the 600 km from Paris to Brest). But we live in time, not kilometers, and it's a lot of hours, further complicated by 9 time zones difference.
Time for another trip - this time to Vancouver, Oregon, and Parksville...
