Monday 1st August
After three weeks away we are en route back to Musetta to continue our travels! More to follow….Read more…
What a miserable day to be leaving? However with exciting prospects ahead we were certainly not downcast as we left Portsmouth harbour aboard the Normandie Express to Cherbourg, passing the Spinnaker Tower and a lonely naval ship on the way out!
The trip across to Cherbourg was fine and after a scheduled stop in Bricquebec to meet a friend Annelise for a quick catch up, we had a long drive, approximately 240 miles to Port La Forêt and so we lost no time in setting off, stopping only for some supper about 50 miles short of Port La Forêt in a small town called Baud in the Rance valley.
Ah, that’s more like it!! Next stop Musetta, it will be so good to see her again…
Wednesday 3rd August – Bénodet
Here are some snaps taken when we visited this popular destination by car. We have decided that we really can’t see everywhere by boat and as Benodet is very close to Port La Forêt we drove there instead! It is a pretty entrance to the river Odet with lots of boating activity which also includes the ferries that leave from here to go to les Îles de Glénans.
