    3 Tage in Quiberon

    August 28, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    ...haben wir zufällig am Drehort des gleichnamigen Films verbracht:

    Hier auf der bretonischen Halbinsel erholte sich 1981 Romy Schneider, im Film beeindruckend gespielt von Marie Bäumer, von ihrem Leben und gab ein letztes tragisches Interview.
    Ganz und gar ohne Tragik sind wir fröhlich in den schroffen Felsen gekraxelt und am Abend hat Jens an der Hafen-Promenade entspannt gemalt. Wäre Romy vorbeigekommen, hätten wir sie bestimmt ein wenig aufgemuntert und sie hätte ein wunderschönes Bild gemalt.
    (in Gedenken an ihre Tage hier sind alle Bilder heute mal schwarz-weiß)

    ...we happened to be at the location of the film of the same name:

    Here on the Breton peninsula in 1981 Romy Schneider, impressively played in the film by Marie Bäumer, recovered from her life and gave one last tragic interview.
    Without any tragedy we happily climbed into the craggy rocks and in the evening Jens painted relaxed on the harbour promenade. Had Romy passed by, we would have cheered her up a little and she would have painted a beautiful picture.
    (in remembrance of her days here all pictures are black and white today)

    Port Haliguen

    June 8, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Hello so neither me nor the cats have got our sea legs, although the wind was fairly mild, because of the weather over the last few days there was quite a bit of swell. We made it here in 4.5hours pretty good but without using sails. We really do have to try using them more often but to do this we need 2 people to be fully operational not just one. I did try taking tablets but they didn't work, am going to follow Jess's advice and eat ginger biscuits next time. The port is lovely but big we are a 5min walk from services, I used my pushbike to do the washing. Tomorrow, Friday, we plan to ride around the 'island' we thought about going to Carnac but to quote the person next me 'a rock is a rock and we've seen the pictures now', so we won't be going. John would also like people to know that he went through the inside passage at the north end of Quiberon so please make appreciative nods etc. Next update soonRead more
