When Mrs The Millbrooker and I visit Brittany, which we do as often as time and budget permit, we think of our time there as "a holiday of little adventures". That's a phrase that we borrowed from Tove Jansson's beautiful and charming The Summer Book - highly recommended reading as far as I'm concerned.
What we mean by this is that we're never really doing anything spectacular or highly adventurous, but we enjoy little discoveries: spotting common but delightful birds, trying to photograph butterflies, watching water boatmen skimming over a stream, ordering a meal in a place where there is no menu and you simply get what you're given, trying a new wine (yep - that's a good adventure) and on and on and on....
So, in honour of little adventures, here's a series of photos from last weekend and then I'll shut up about Brittany until next time we make it over the channel.

parasol mushroom close to Bronolo and the Etang de Brugou. Parasol mushrooms are edible (we've picked them close to Millbrook) and jolly tasty, too. This one was about a foot tall.
Au revoir, a bientot.
