Sunny in Quimper

We were very lucky with the weather today. Quimper was bathed in sunshine throughout as we rambled around the old town with its beautiful historic houses and Gothic cathedral, and then along the river to the earliest area of settlement at Locmaria for a Romanesque church and medieval style garden. Lovely afternoon, thanks to everyone. Fleur gets Dog of the Day just for turning up.
Next walk: October 21st
One day Landscape of Brittany course: November 2nd (change of date)

Quimper, Wednesday 23rd September

We have a town walk for September, taking in some of the remarkable history and architecture of Quimper, capital of Finistère. The pretty riverside setting is very attractive and our exploration will include the unusual cathedral, a Romanesque church, three gardens, medieval fortifications and the streets of colourful half-timbered houses for which Quimper is well-known.
