Monday 4th July 2016
A leisurely start having arrived latish the previous evening so by the time we were moored and out of sailing mode it was past midnight!
We woke to a horrid, grey day of intermittent drizzle with leaden skies? Not what we were hoping for but hey ho, we can’t change the weather and so we set off to discover the town.
On the way we passed these! They are definitely a feature and we watched artists capturing them on canvas?
We found the harbour office, paid up and then made our way back to Musetta, hoping that tomorrow would be a more inspiring day?!
Tuesday 5th July
Wow, what a difference a day makes?! Out came the bikes and we cycled to Morgat another port we had been told about but not really suitable for Musetta. It was a delightful little place, very chic and with a beautiful beach before the port/marina area. It was a hive of activity due to an international Laser dinghy championship taking place. We had a good look around enjoying the sunshine and the stunning views.
The terrain in this area is very hilly and we were extremely glad of the many gears on our folding bikes! However, we did stop for a rest on the way back to Cameret at a beach called Kerloc’h where, because it was so beautiful, we decided to have an early supper!
Wednesday 6th July
Another sunny and warm day, amazing! We did some boat jobs during the morning and then explored some more with the bikes in the afternoon. We cycled to Pointe Du Toulinguet, well as far as were allowed as it is a Zone Militaire and is guarded by ramparts. Then to La Pointe de Pen-Hir where on a clear day you can take in the panorama of the end of the Chanal du Four and Ushant to the north and Raz de Sein and Île de Sein to the south. It was a stunning view!
There was a memorial museum nearly at the end of the Pointe de Pen-Hir telling the story of the Battle of the Atlantic in which thousands of boats and men were lost? Below are some of the relics on view outside.
Back to Musetta to prepare for the next day and a passage via the infamous Raz de Sein where timing of one’s arrival is crucial, also we are told that once through you can relax and enjoy sailing!!
We have enjoyed our visit to Cameret sur Mer, a super little stopover especially when the weather is kind!
