An opportunity to enjoy our favourite walk.....

We had a couple of hours free yesterday so we took the opportunity to put Alfie on his lead and take our favourite walk - Saint Malo to Tour Solidor across the Plage de Bas Sablons and around the Cite d’Alet.  The walk takes in the marina, a quiet stretch of beach for Alfie and a clifftop path which offers some beautiful views across the Rance estuary to Dinard.

It was a bit chilly ...... but hey it is February but the sky was clear, the sun was shining and it was very still.

Tour Solidor was built around 1370 and was designed to be a fortified keep to give Duke John IV of Brittany authority over the Rance estuary.  The tower now houses a museum collection which documents the stories of the sailors who sailed around the dreaded Cape Horn and survived.

For Alfie its just a causeway which he loves to swim from .........
