    Ile d'Oleron

    August 4, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    OK so from St Martin de re we headed south east to La Flotte, still on Ile de Re, where we anchored up for the night. We had hoped to row ashore but was a bit blowy for that. We did have a bit of drama though as we decided to attached a bouy to the anchor as a 'trip' but hadn't allowed for the strength of tide which saw the bouy disappear. So at low tide we rowed to it and attached another rope but 5mins later when we looked the bouy was rapidly disappearing on the wind, my knot had come undone and bouy and long rope were floating off. John set off in pursuit and caught it.
    Next day we headed to Ile d'Oleron via For Boyard and anchored just North of Boyardville. It was bottom of the neap with 1.8m of tidal movement! We stripped down and greased 2 of the winches and had a swim or 2. The wind had dropped during the day and we had a quiet night, next morning was gloomy so we rowed ashore to have a look round Boyardville the bit we saw, which I suppose wasn't much, wasn't very pretty. In the afternoon there was bit more wind but not much and some random swell and the boat start making whale noises? Can't figure out why. We did some swimming and John did his good samaritan bit and rowed out to 2 paddle boarders who were making no progress to shore and had been trying for about 20mins we think their safety cover was chatting on beach. The second night was noiser than first as more windy and our 'whale' wouldn't go away. This morning, Friday it was raining and after checking batteries we headed to the North of the island and St Denis d'Oleron where we are now comfortably moored listening to the wind. Should be here 3nights, planning on a longish cycle tomorrow as not been here before so should go see some more sights. Attached church and beach huts from St Denis d'Oleron and Fort Boyard

    La Rochelle

    February 17, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌫 7 °C

    So sad to leave Bordeaux this morning. Super foggy walk to the bus station but very refreshing. The bus was an hour late and I made it to La Rochelle only a half hour late. Checked into my beautiful room with memory foam bed and pillows and only 12 minutes from the Gare. Quickly went out to scope the city out! Wow, another amazing place. Reminds me a bit of Granville island and Lago di Garda Italy. Spotless, art studios everywhere and gorgeous scenery. I'm hoping to meet Corinne's aunt and uncle tomorrow so I can send her a recent photo. The air is so good here, just like Bordeaux. Found the Marche and they were selling fresh oysters for what I thought was a pretty good price. Can't wait to explore tomorrow. And.....this is now Cognac country not wine as I found many Cognac boutiques and Cognac is only 25km away from here.Read more
