    More walks of Lorient

    by gwened Written Apr 7, 2015

    Favorite thing: a town that rose from the ashes of WWII to a modern progressive city, this is Lorient. About 25 kms from me and always a nice trip to do on weekends.

    We were there today again for our favorite sweets and took some newer pictures for VT friends. Nice new look at a city in France.

    The monument to the fallen is at place Jules Ferry by quai des indies you walk up Rue de la Patrie and at corner with Rue de LIége you see the CMB bank or credit mutuel de Bretagne and the coat of arms ,continue on Rue de la Patrie and you reach place Alsace Lorraine, here take Rue Vauban towards place de la liberation take left to blvd du Général Leclerc to city hall or hotel de ville.

    Fondest memory: wonderful monument to the fallen by quai des indies with ashes of deported heroes.

    Monument to the fallen the coat of arms of cities of Brittany by CMB bank the Saint Louis Church at place Alsace Lorraine City hall, or Hotel de Ville of Lorient

    go to boulangeries and patisseries like Le Goff

    by gwened Updated Apr 7, 2015

    Favorite thing: a habit is to go to the bakery or pastry shop, here they can make a meal sometimes and always a formule of sandwich, dessert and softdrink , it can help. And now a shopping tip as well !!

    The variety of breads and pastries at Le Goff is amazing the windows are always full, the shop too, and the product is perfectly delicious.

    This one is my favorite now, try a few but now I come here straight even for a croissant or pain au chocolat on the go lol!!!22 Rue de la Patrie, 56100 Lorient
    open Mondays to Saturdays from 7h30 to 19h30

    Fondest memory: walking the streets and savoring these goodies on the go sublime.

    the boating life at Lorient

    by gwened Written Jul 14, 2013

    Favorite thing: Here you see boats all over, private ones have storage in the local shipyards, and when ready they can call up to be put at sea and off they go. We got there when a family of Three were getting ready to put their boat at sea by the shipyard next to the gare maritime.

    we watch the operation ,and the thrill of thinking what it will bring joys to these people. Enjoy Lorient

    Fondest memory: walking and riding the many boats, cruise and private along this area

    Walk again Lorient

    by gwened Written Nov 10, 2012

    Favorite thing: another wonderful manageable town to walk and see marvels in the streets with shops, restos and people especially as the end of the year season is coming and decorations starts to crop up.

    it is my favorite time when visiting just walking and with the photos hopefully capture the magic of a town, Lorient has magic and lots of history.

    From the ashes of the awful wwll a town came back alive, from 15k inhabitants left with 300 and they came back, my kind of town, and love to walk and see its new history.

    Fondest memory: walking the marina, the pl Aristide Briand and Pl de Vauban, lovely and see the shops and eat on the run while gazing the details.

    place Aristide Briand looking at pl Jules Ferry from Nayel rue de la Patrie the nice quai des Indes the magical rue du port
