Vannes, gateway to Brittany

We covered quite a bit of ground today as we managed to drop my old bike off with DHL and then continue the drive up to Brittany, or Bretagne as it is known in France.
Vannes is a surprisingly lovely old town and we are just outside it, camped about 50 metres from the sea. We are actually quite a way inland in an estuary, complete with little Islands and inlets.
We walked to the nearest bar we could find and sat in the sun enjoying local cider in strange heavy china teacups.
We could see across the water to a small island and graffiti on the wall said 'Breton toujours, Francais jamais'. Meaning 'Brittany always, France never.'
Quite a topical subject at the moment.
