Sitting on the balcony and looking out at the sea. It's amazing the way the inbound hydrofoils from Jersey suddenly appear on the horizon on their way to St Malo. On Sunday we saw a cruise ship - all decked out in lights - cruise across leaving from St Malo. It had arrived that morning and laid anchor in St Servan and was using its tender boats to bring passengers to St Malo. Arriving by ship into St Malo in good weather would be a gorgeous sight withs its island forts and walled fortress town.

The beach across the road has a life cycle of its own - during the core of the day its families and traditional beach activities. Outside of that you have individual swimmers on their way to/from work as well as kite surfers and kite flyers. If its a high tide there's a buzzing swarm of kids on scooters arriving with their boards to ride the waves.

And of course not a hurdy-gurdy or sunlounger in sight !
