La Gouesnière

On Saturday we went to an inland village called La Gouesnière, a few kilometres inland from Cancale, where you can buy and eat raw oysters on the beach. La Gouesnière's annual sale was in a field; lots of ruts and holes everywhere! But far be it from me to let that get in the way of some good brocante-ing.

At La Gouesnière you can not only sell your children's outgrown clothes, you can dry them too!

Need a cast iron cauldron with a hole in the bottom? Look no further!

This stool is da bomb. I love it and I want it in my living room. It wouldn't go with anything but I have never let that stop me.

A cool assortment of plates, cradled in freshly mown hayfield.

On our way home we stopped at McDonald's, not only because of the play area, not only because you can get a beer with your fries (photographic evidence above), not only because every McDonald's in France has free wifi, but also because the food here is universally excellent.

Well, maybe not that last part.

Good lord, if they started selling beer at McDonald's I'd be terrified to drive.

That stool is a crazy combination of tetris and legos. Did you get it?

I forgot to add "in the U.S." to the McBeer part.

Alas, I didn't get the stool! If only because I have limited trunk space and that thing would have put me way over quota. As it is just with small stuff I'm bringing back much too much. Wherever am I going to fit all of it??
