Yesterday was the village fête.
The weather was perfect… if anything, it was a little too hot at 34 degrees!!
At 9am there was a flurry of activity as stalls and gazebos were being set up…
At midday everything was ready and the queue for a galette saucisse was growing.
A galette saucisse is a Breton version of a hot dog. It is basically a sausage rolled up in a savory pancake.
Personally I prefer a British Hotdog with onions mustard and ketchup.. but today it was galette saucisse all round !
The stalls opened at 2pm and there were games for everyone: archery, throwing a horseshoe round a pole, and even a lady giving ‘tattoos’ ..
Iona came home with a lizard on her shoulder and a frog on the back of her hand. The ink seems pretty permanent!!!..
At 6pm the winners of the tombola were announced… we didn’t win the sheep.
