An update on Metung

Unfortunately the boardwalk didn’t get finished in time for the tourist season but some of it was completed and now the boardwalk reaches almost to Edgewater Terraces.

This part is now completed and is in use.Since I took the last two photos the barriers on the edge of the boardwalk have been installed and this part of the boardwalk is now in full use.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before the remaining part of the boardwalk is finished.

The other work that has been happening in the village is the reopening of the bakery,

This is before it was due to open.  The bakery is flourishing now with the tourist season in full swing.

Unfortunately there has been no further work on the burnt out building.  I guess nothing more will happen until the holiday period is over.  Meanwhile the other businesses in Metung are doing great trade during this time.

Quiberon doesn’t float my boat.

Quiberon is a coastal town that sits at the end of a long peninsula on the south coast of Brittany.

The reason I am not overly keen on it is the fact that it is a very touristy town.  There are about 22 hotels in Quiberon plus other types of accommodation.

I prefer the unspoiled places that are not so densely populated.  Having said that, I still enjoyed our day at Quiberon and if you are someone who loves the beach this would certainly be a place for you.

Boats leave from Quiberon to go to Belle-Ile, which is a very popular destination.

We stopped to watch a boat loading and departing with its load of passengers.

One thing that caught my eye while we were there. . . . .
