As you come over the bridge into the village of Saint Martin, this is the view across the marshes. Our house, Maison Mielles, is a couple of minutes walk away.
We had arranged to meet and pick up Daniel one of HelpXers from the Jardin des Plantes, in Avranches. I’ve been past and through Avranches many times but never stopped to look at the public gardens, which are really very beautiful, with a rather good play area for kids.
Avranches is a lovely old town, built up and on top of a steep hill. It has lots of restaurants and small boutique shops. Definitely worth a visit.
This morning I woke up just as the snow was starting. It wasn’t really cold and I was massively over dressed. But by the time I got home after my dog walk my hair was thick with snow and it was staring to fall in snow ball size flakes. By 11am the sun was out and it had disappeared!
