After visiting Pont L’Abbe, Quimper, and the beach in Lesconil, we went to an old German submarine base in Lorient, the Keroman Submarine Base. It was used during WW II and still stands pretty much as I think it did then. You can see the think walls, the huge buildings that used to house the submarines and an actual submarine. It’s hard to imagine the dimensions until you’ve been there. They also have a museum on the grounds, the Cité de la Voile. I have never been in it, but hear it’s quite good – if you are interested in sailing that is… because that’s what it’s all about. Across from the entrance of the museum is a little bar/restaurant called La Base. We went for lunch in December and had delicious skewers (i.e., brochette) with chicken and beef. Of course they also have seafood skewers being so close to the water 🙂 And don’t skip dessert either: they had the best chocolate mousse (i.e., mousse au chocholat)! I’ve never been in the summer, but they have a huge patio that looks like it could be a lot of fun when it’s warm outside. I can see myself there with a bottle of beer or wine enjoying the sun and looking at pretty sail boats… Oh, one can dream, right? Now back to work! Here are some pics. As usual, the rest of the pictures, can be found on the Facbeook page.
