I fell in love with Bretagne (Brittany) big time. I was never before in this area but it's so great, amazing, wonderful. It stole my heart. For interested in Celtic history, I loved the celtic influences you could sense everywhere. I never saw those 'open' towers of the churches, but it looks gorgeous. I love the rough nature, the huge rocks on the beach, the menhirs and dolmen that tickles my imagination. We had a wonderful view on a bay from our tent. I loved to stand on this hill, the scent of the fresh sea, listening to the sound of the waves and the seagulls, the wind playing with my hair and thoughts, i imagining that i'm a celtic lady searching the sea for the boat of her lover. Nearby our camping there were the remains of a celtic community, so that's where my fantasy comes from. ;-)
The weather where we were was warm, but with soft rain and always a wind. Exactly how i love it. My boys loved to climb the rocks with their father. And the youngest one was tickled by the history of Normandy (we were there the first days of our holidays) so he was sometimes a soldier, hiding in the dunes or on the rocks.
I have reloaded my batteries, hoping to safe this energy for awhile.
It's good to be back though as well and i'll pay you all a visit in time.
My drawing stuff is packed as well. Monday morning, very early i'm off to France! How i need this vacation, hoping to refill my batteries. First we going to a little village in the neighborhood of Le Havre. There's a nice skating parc on the beach. My love and i laying in the sun on the beach and my 2 kids skateboarding. ;-)
Then we're going further down, wanna explore Bretagne. I'm looking forward to much sunshine, France bread, wine and cheese and hopefully lots of drawing as well.
I'm not the only one that travels. The mandalas Shana Goetsch and i are changing and working on is travelling again also. A new round has started. Check it out HERE! I take the mandala witj me to work on it......
Take care you all, i'll be missing you! And i'll be back at the end of august, begin of septembre.
