THURSDAY 18th May
One of the short backroads excursions when on the Tour was a visit to CANCALE, a small fishing village in Brittany, north-western France. People who enjoy oysters are in their element when visiting CANCALE, the oyster capital renowned for its flat-shelled oysters and seafood Restaurants.
Marche aux Huitres is a tiny open-air Market on the beach near the oyster farm – a delight to oyster lovers who purchase a plate of oysters with lemon and consume them right there throwing the shells on to a very large heap on the sand.
My choice was not oysters but the best Crepe so far, enjoyed in a very quaint little cafe on the seafront.
