  • Day10


    August 4, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Vandaag zijn we vroeg in de auto gestapt om naar Huelgoat te gaan waar vanuit het centrum een wandeling start van ongeveer 10km door het bos met allerlei rots partijen. Je kan deze met gids lopen maar ook zelfstandig want de route staat duidelijk aangegeven, haha dat hebben we gemerkt. Met de Franse slag zullen ze bedoelen want we zagen veel witte pijlen maar hoe verder we volgde op de route hoe stiller het werd om ons heen, bleken dus ver van de route te zijn verwijderd, waarschijnlijk was het een mountainbike route. Maar gelukkig kwam alles goed en kwamen we na 4 uur lopen weer terug bij ons start punt. Was dus een vermoeiende dag maar wel erg leuk. Het leek wel op Oostenrijk.Read more

    Roscanvel - Camaret - Cap de la Chevre

    August 27, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Heute haben wir einen langen Ausflug unternommen auf die Crozon Halbinsel. Von unserem ersten Halt in der Nähe von Roscanval hatte man Blick auf Brest und auf die Anleger der Marine U-Boote. Militärstützpunkte gib es dort einige und viele alte Bunker der Deutschen aus dem Krieg. In Camaret sur Mer gab es einen Schiffsfriedhof und eine Kirche mit Schiffen an der Decke zu bewundern. Auf der Fahrt hatten wir auch immer wieder einen schönen Blick aufs Meer. An unserem dritten Stop am Cap de la Chevre haben wir noch eine kurze Wanderung am den Klippen gemacht.
    Es war ein langer Tag, an dem wir zwar viel gesehen, aber leider auch viel Zeit im Auto verbracht haben.
    Abends gab Spaghetti mit Meeresfrüchten.

    Camaret sur mer

    May 21, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Wow lovely day for 'sailing', we don't obviously actually use the sails but as it is a yacht I suppose that is the correct term. So today we went further west then south then east. From l'aber wrac'h along the coast towards the Le four lighthouse and being as this is JVK, we had to do it on the inside passage, and then south through the channel around point St Matieu, I will add photo. Then we crossed the Gullet of Brest going southeast to Camaret. The cats as you can see are happier but not relaxed about the engine. The final photo is the one I should have taken on way into L'aber wrach, it is of Smiley on the bunker who greets you on your way into port, when we arrived however I was not smiling. 😁Read more

    Only 8 lives left

    May 22, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Well woke up this morning and couldn't find Cousteau, panic, we walked up and down pontoons a couple of times even before breakfast, then standing alongside boat talking to John about what might have happened and I hear a truly pitiful wail from under my feet What the?
    OK so we now know where the cat is, under the pontoon, slats, but not how to get to her. We lay down and looked over the side of the pontoon there were a series of floating black squares on either side with 9inch gaps between them all round. So one of us was going to have to get wet and I wasn't sure the cat had long enough for John to get wetsuit ed booted and gloved so me it was. Water was warmer than expected. I had to get under pontoon into middle gap before I could see her looking very wet and sorry for herself, I squeezed between the slats and the floating black squares. To cut a long story short I bundled her into a bucket, that was squeezed between floating black squares to me, she wasn’t sure that was a good idea but I persuaded her and then she and bucket were again squeezed out and back to John. She was very grubby and wet. John did suggest afterwards that I should have taken waterproof camera with me for rescue but sorry at the time I was a bit too worried about the cat. She appears to be OK now.Read more

    L'Aulne, Port Launay and Chataeulin

    May 25, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    So we got through the gullet of Brest and cruised up the river Aulne our first night was spent anchored just up river from the naval ships graveyard (1) and down river of the Terenez bridge (2), it was so very peaceful only the birds for company. We had thought we might do a bit of sailing but there was no wind at all.
    The next day, Wednesday I gave JVK’s hair a trim, not the pony tail obviously, then we actually cleaned the outside of the boat in the dinghy pulling ourselves round scrubbing as we went. After half tide up we set off further up river to Guili Glaz Lock where we nearly ran into a diver.
    Let me explain, our book says that if the bottom gates are open you can just go in to the lock and tie up and they were so we started to, but then on the shore we are being told to go to 'babord' so we do and only at last minute does someone add.... 'and wait'. There was a sort of holding quay, apparently there was a problem with the top gates and there was a 'swimming man in the water'. We didn't get him, so after waiting for gates to be fixed and chatting with lock keepers wife we carried on to Port Launay (3+4) but it was soo warm 31c. The town hall where we were supposed to pay our mooring fees was closed so we had a drink at the bar, a short walk and then afternoon nap, while Cousteau explored the quay and ate grass for first time in 3weeks. Quite noisy as next to busy road. Thursday we go to Chataeulin (5) further up river we are now in officially uncharted territory, why did we go? you might be wondering well mostly because there is a hypermarket very close to visitors pontoon, which is actually a bit small for us, so we're against the quay but on other side so fairly quiet, usually there is more going on except this afternoon which we have concluded must be a bit of holiday of some sort as tourist office not open and hypermarket closed at lunchtime, fortunately we had done our shopping in the morning bringing it back in the supermarket trolley, it was so close. Back down river tomorrow but either go early 7:00 or late 19:30 to catch lock and falling tide, probably late as we are getting very lazy, it's still 30c today, too hot for effort activities.

    Last day of riding

    June 15, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    I can't freaking WAIT. I haven't had reliable service or a way to charge my phone in days, basically. More updates later - dinner with my godparents in Brest tonight, assuming I can ride 60 miles in a reasonable amount of time!

  • Day45


    September 20, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

    Ein typischer Ort in der Bretagne, angeblich war er auch schon Filmstar... 😎💪✌️
    Der Platz am Meer ist traumhaft, aber es geht unheimlich starker Wind 🍃 und in der Nacht soll es schütten 😬

    Surfen in der Bretagne

    July 20, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Zwischenzeitlich sind wir in nördlicheren Regionen angelangt. Es wird deutlich kälter und regnerischer, trotzdem haben wir die Surfspots abgeklappert. Wir geniessen es sehr den Bus zu haben und am Abend in der Wärme zu sitzen und Yatzy zu spielen. Heute feiern wir auch wieder den Gin Tonschtig :D

  • Day12

    Forêt de Huelgoat

    July 18, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Heute eine Wanderung durch einen verwunschenen Wald gemacht. Leider kamen der Wanderführer und ich heut nicht gut mit einander aus. Ständig verlaufen 🤬. Dadurch waren dann ein paar Highlights nicht gefunden. Na ja, Spaß gemacht hat's trotzdem.!

  • Day326

    Frankreich, Halbinsel Crozon

    August 17, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Vom Ärmelkanal bin ich weiter mit kleiner Zwischenstation in Brest und habe dort das Océanopolis besucht.
    Am nächsten Tag bei grauem Himmel und Regen meine neue Reisebegleitung abgeholt (die Mutter) und dann zur Halbinsel Crozon gefahren.
    Auch hier trifft man auf tolle Strände, die fast menschenleer sind...Read more
