Colourful Pontrieux

Fascinating Pontrieux in Brittany, France . . . where we stopped for a delicious lunch and a gentle meander through the town.
 
 
The rich golden umbrellas on the decked area outside the café added a wonderful splash of colour, complementing the blue windows 
. . . and the weeping Willow was clearly well established and showing off its reflection

 
The weather was a little unpredictable this day, so we chose to eat indoors, but I can well imagine how popular the deck area would be on a brighter day!



 
and the River Trieux running through the town provides some attractive scenery

 
These delightful blue shutters seemed in evidence whichever way we turned

 
I'm told that these steps and shelters which appear along the river banks, were used by housekeepers of adjacent properties to carry out the family's laundry chores in past decades

 
. . . and there's the blue boat I used in last week's post


 
A delightful town all up.

I was just thinking,'What a delightful town' when I got to your last sentence and you had already said it. Delightful photos too. Lunch on that deck would be lovely in nice weather,
