Going to the beach

We had such a nice weather today that right after work/school, we drove to the beach near Portsall. At about 25km away from Brest, you'll find many small secluded sandy beaches where it is nice to chill-out after a hard day's work.

Baïkal Cafe

The Baïkal Café is a vodka bar located on Glasgow street in the Saint-Martin area. I've not been in yet, but I always enjoy looking at its painted shutters when it's still closed early in the morning.
