I couldn’t wait for our second road trip from Saint-Malo as we were heading to Frehel to check out the hiking trails at the Cap Frehel Lighthouse. We had a French breakfast before heading out for the hour drive.A few pictures I snapped of random beautiful buildings in the villages on the drive.The last part of the drive along the beach reminds me of driving along the California coast to Point Reyes.The Lighthouse and mini Lighthouse.
The rocks and cliffs are so beautiful to see as you walk along the trails.We stopped at the Frehel casino and had lunch on the beach. I had pesto mozzarella chicken with pasta which was just OK.The view was definitely the best part of the meal.It is so crazy to me that during low tide the boats just sit on the shore. When high tide comes in, you see them sitting in the ocean just like they are docked.I had this delicious cappuccino brought to me while we gambled – I love that!Our last stop of the day on our drive back was in a cute town called Dinard. I picked up a few souvenirs, we stopped at the casino and had dinner here too.?Santa Lucia is this little Italian restaurant across from the casino in Dinard.I think it’s awesome that most places give you salty, briny olives whenever you order a drink. It totally makes me want to drink more because I love good olives!We shared this Caprese salad which I think was my favorite to date. Perfectly seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon vinaigrette, sweet balsamic. Delish!I had the homemade mushroom tortellini with chicken, basil & olive oil….It was creamy, cheesy, earthy, and so good. The sweet tomatoes and balsamic balanced out the richness.I had a couple of bites of his profiteroles. It was good but too sweet for me.Catching up on our latest France Trip:
