    June 23 in France ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    What do people expect of french village markets.“?
    Exactly un fest pour le Sinne and a cosy atmosphere. Crozon marché is open everyday with local shops offering finest a variety of fish, cheese, honey and many more <3

    After shopping we visited the north of the crozon peninsula with its small bays Pen Hir and Pen Hat. Definately check out the local bar/cafe Cafe Chez Mémé Germaine. If you want to know where Asterix and the Gallier hang out? This is da place!

    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

    Crozon - beach day with our friends!

    August 18, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    After a lovely breakfast, our hosts take us to one of their favourite beaches, Crozon, in the morning in the hope of surf, and it is a stunningly beautiful beach, but the tide is not quite right for surf and the sun is shining so we spend a lovely day at the beach...a huge stretch of sand when the tide is out, surrounded by rocks and tons of rock pools for us to find sea life in. There are a fair few kite surfers to make Nic envious once more.

    The children love splashing about, and playing with Lili-Rose once more, although Coen’s fear of seaweed has grown and isn’t helped by everyone chasing him with it! They both even get a little surf as the tide comes in. We say a fond farewell to our hosts as they head home and we head across the car park to the little cafe...more Moules Frites for Nic, Amelia settles for a lemon crepe this time!

    We settle down for the night in one of our most picturesque spots, literally a stones throw from the beach looking out to the beautiful bay so that we are able to watch the tide rolling in and out, as the sunsets...a little bit of magic to start out final week of our trip.

    In the morning the children get to play on the beach the minute they wake up, and watch the fishing boats come in (no fish though!) before we take a walk around the headland, it is beautiful and also very much like home, with the shrubs, flowers and trees all reminding us of our own coastlines and forests. Amelia and Coen find more Blackberrys for breakfast - what a great spot!

    We have to head to the north coast next so that we don’t have long drives to reach our ferry, Coen is seriously starting to detest his car seat, lucky we’re nearly home!!

    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.

    Etappe 4 - Roscoff to Camaret-sur-Mer

    October 11, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Lighthouse day. Visiting several lighthouses on our travel from Roscoff to Camaret-sur-Mer was very high on my priority list. We had no blue sky, but some nice and interesting cloud formations, that made the view somehow more interesting. The first stop was at the Kermorvan lighthouse, where big waves crashed on land. Being there early in the morning enabled us to avoid other people at the lighthouse in order to take some nice pictures. The second stop was at the lighthouse Petit Minou, just outside of Brest. After a driving through Brest and the regional Park d'Armorique we arrived in Camaret-sur-Mer, a little fishing village. The afternoon was used to discover the area with our Bikes.Read more
