The blue skies of beautiful Saint-Malo



Saint-Malo, Bretagne (Brittany), France

The interior of the old walled city was destroyed by bombs in WWII
but has been restored to resemble, as much as possible, its old self.

Beautiful photos! :)

Hi Kay, I feel like I am touring along side with you.

Clear blue skies!

It's nice that they restored the city wall. Too often it is seen as too expensive or not modern to make things look as they once did. The a sense of place, a sense of history is lost.

Hi Kay,

Wow! What a wonderful selection of sky shots. Thanks so much for sharing them with us. Too bad that the inside of the castle is destroyed.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Lovely photos of Saint-Malo - I have just read a novel which included a trip to St Malo, so am delighted to see it in your post today.
Have a safe week-end.

Thank you for the mini tour around Saint Malo, Kay!

LOOKING UP

No matter if blue or if grey,
The sky is my favorite way
To find my heart’s ease;
And now, if you please,
I must go look up straightaway.

Lovely skies--thank for the interesting photos --nice to see shots of places I'll probably never get too. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)

Dimple said...

Beautiful shots. I was impressed with the restored walled city. The evil that men do destroys so much, but those who survive and remember can (partly) restore it.

Lynette Killam said...

Such a charming little spot, and your photos show it to full advantage! I would very much enjoy poking about the restored city with camera in hand, but for now am content to share the trip with you vicariously...:)

Great photos.
I love the rugged brittany. My favorite places ar in the far west. We come there in our sailboat several times.
But I have not been to Saint Malo.

Francisca said...

I'm glad you had beautiful blue skies when you visited St Malo. I was there last with my mother in the '90s and I just inherited a painting of the place she bought there from her!

Lisa RedWillow said...
