    Aber wrac'h

    May 17, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    We made it but it wasn't pleasant long rolling waves and a lot of rain, from what little we could see coast looked to have lots of little islands and bays, but we weren't in the mood to appreciate them. Cats were especially miserable huddled on the to step and well I would have taken a photo but I was too busy being sick over the side, got to hope I get proper sea legs soon.
    We were met at marina entrance and escorted to pontoon. Not long after our arrival other boats from Roscoff arrived but as we are moored miles from facilities we might not get to ask about their trip. We do know that most are headed down the Chanel du Four towards Best whereas we are going up river for a couple of nights first, well that’s the plan anyway. Tomorrow should be better weather so hope to take photos but this the harbour from on board

    Looks like you need to get down south. Spain was great 25 degrees and very light winds. Once you are down around that way we would maybe come visit you. How far down do you hope to be by the end of July? At least if you get some rough days out the way earlier on in the trip then you might get your sea legs. Nothing worse than getting sea sick I remember going fishing with dad and no sooner had he got to the point he needed to turn round and drop me back at the quay. 😂😂

    L'aber wrac'h still

    May 19, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    OK so sadly we didn't get to Paluden, we took the dinghy up river a little ways but apparently Take Five is to big for the mooring bouys there. Yesterday we took the dinghy around the bay for a nose around after walking up to the shops for supplies, well mostly for milk so we can keep on drinking tea. Bay is large and as tides are neaps the water isn't disappearing which is good but sadly a lot of the little islands appear to be private though we did visit a few anyway as the shutters were closed on the houses there. I picked some winkles as well which I had later as an appetiser. This brought back lovely memories of my Gran who died almost a year ago as when we were younger she took us, Max, Bryony and I, winkle picking she would then cook them and we would all sit around the kitchen table picking winkles, dunking them in vinegar before eating them, happy times. Today, Friday, we decided to go walking West around the bay, we nearly made it to Aber Benoit before we headed back below are some pics, zoom for a better view of bay and Phare de l'ile Vierge. There is also a picture of the ugliest French house we have seen to date.Read more

    I did that the other day with the boys and told them that we used to go collecting winkles with granny biscuit. They even liked them !!
