Editor’s Note: In July, 1999, I travelled with Cathy, Andy and Patrick to visit the Riboud Family.  We took the ferry across the English Channel from Portsmouth, England to St. Malo, France.  During our visit with the Ribouds in nearby Cancale, we drove up the Brittany Coast one day to sightsee at St. Malo and visit Myriam’s retired parents there, the de la Roncieres.  Their house was perched on a cliff, high above the Atlantic Ocean below.  Myriam and Andy could see St. Malo’s buildings down the coast and Thomas, Josephine and Patrick did their best to fly a kite down on the beach that windy day.  Once back up top, Myriam’s mother showed us a strange World War II artifact that lay under the front lawn of her house.  Although the rusted entrance to the German Army bunker was hidden by a hedge, the concrete chambers below had long survived the bombardments on D-Day farther east on the Normandy Coast.
