The aire we were to stay in was closed (another one) and didn't find the one at the port until we were walking back to the truck at the end of the day! Anyway . . . St Malo - founded in the 6th century probably by St Maclou (from Wales), a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance River. Notorious home of the French Corsairs. Jacques Cartier sailed from here to eventually find his way up the St Lawrence Seaway and be considered the French discoverer of Canada - don't mention the Vikings. The first colonists of the Falkland Islands also came from here - Iles Malouines (or Spanish Malvinas). Most of the town was bombed in WW2 but rebuilt.
