Day 7 Tuesday, 30th May 2017
A day in port doing all those jobs essential for a happy ship: supermarket shopping, blogging, checking lifejackets, showering, passage planning etc.etc. In the afternoon we set off with our fuel cans to the fuel pump and manage to get the boat boy to take them back to the boat so we can continue walking into the town of Quiberon on the Atlantic side of the peninsula. The sun has come out and it’s pretty hot again. Malcolm rushes me past all the clothes shops down to the beach and the port where we have huge icecreams with two scoops – for mine I choose Pistachio and Creme de Marrons, and Malcolm chooses Creme Brulee and Duo Chocolat. In future we think one scoop would be a better idea for our waistlines but there are always so many flavours to choose from. Difficult decisions!
Tomorrow we’re crossing to the other side of Quiberon Bay and staying on the waiting pontoon at Arzel, ready for the lock on Thursday morning. Slight tribulations about the depth meter not working as there’s a bar across the entrance to the Vilaine River, but we’re entering at mid-water and going up on a rising tide so all should be well. Fingers crossed.
