With fireworks, it turns out that sometimes, more is just more!
On the first night of our 10 days at the beach house this summer there was the most enormous fireworks display! The quantity of firepower was quite amazing, and as we were down wind of the display we pretty much got covered in debris.
The fireworks were after the first night of the Festival a Fond La Cale à St Martin de Bréhal, which is the big summer festival that happens in mid-August every year.
They first Sunday there is also the Unidentified Floating Object Competition, which is a carnival where the floats have to actually float and the winner is the first one to make it back to the beach!
There are also a couple of days activity at the racecourse, with Trotters, Flat and Jump Racing.
And finally there is the Agricultural Show, which we only saw the tail end of, as the exhibitors were leaving (too busy having a siesta!)
