Photographer's Note

Here we are in Cancale. The sea seems to have deserted the place as the tide is low. Only a few boats floundering in the mud are waiting to be rocked again by the waves.
When we arrived, there was a threatening sky despite the few rays trying to break the clouds... A little skeptical about the beautiful day announced, we reached quietly the harbor, the pier and the oyster beds ... After eating a pancake, the sun, the blue sky and the turquoise sea made their appearance for the rest of the day.

Bordered by the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, Cancale enjoys an advanced position on the coast. Its inhabitants, courageous and volunteers had also to fight against the elements and various invasions : Portuguese and Spanish invasion, the British attacks, pirates, and battles against the Chouans...
Cancale is now a nice combination of all the delights of the coast.
In 1994, the National Council of Culinary Arts has recognized Cancale "site remarquable du got" for the quality and reputation of its oysters.
