Camaret

We are about to complete our 5th night in Camaret due to strong winds, rain and big seas. The shopkeepers now know Ginny by name! Plenty of time to catch up on domestic chores, admin and plan the next passage through the Raz De Sein, another notorious shortcut. Such fun..... life goes on.

We went for our first meal to celebrate being in France and defeat the strong winds and rain. It had to be Moules ( Just to annoy Zoe! ). We even dressed up for the occasion.
Moules Frites And A Nice Bottle Of Local Cider
All Finished Cap't, Delicieuse!
Pointe Du Toulinguet And Pen Hat Beach
It was very windy on Thursday with 25 kt winds and a rough sea so we decided to go for a long walk. Stunning beaches, amazing German WW2 fortifications, a small museum, memorial anchors, monuments, great views and an ancient stone circle all made for a most enjoyable stroll. We enjoyed a lovely picnic as well, well it had to be a baguette, cheese and red plonk. Enjoyed watching a couple of yachts struggle manfully in the wind and waves. Oh well, no rush.......
