What importance can we attach to the things of this world?
Friendship? It disappears when the one who is liked comes to grief, or the one who likes becomes powerful.
Love? it is deceived, fleeting, or guilty.
Fame? You share it with mediocrity or crime.
Fortune? Could that frivolity be counted a blessing? All that remains are those so-called happy days that flow past unnoticed in the obscurity of domestic cares, leaving man with the desire neither to lose his life nor to begin it over.
~ François-René de Chateaubriand~
Visting the fortified walled city of San Maló, Brittany. Watching the great tides by the sea and not far from the shores is the island where Rene de Chateaubriand was buried, San Maló goes back to history of the base of corsairs (pirates) and where Jacques Cartier, the first European to travel inland in North America, claimed Canada for France and tasting their sumptuous mussels, oysters and Breton pancakes.
Next route: revisiting Mont Saint Michel and exploring historical parts of Brittany region of France like: Josselin, Dinan and Brest.
