... array of layers which would have befitted a traveller to the Arctic Circle. She must have been extremely snugly because she slept the whole way!! We made a coffee stop but found the chosen cafe, which had a prominently displayed 'ouvert' sign, closed! Doh! But not to worry as we found a very nice place in the next, larger, town.

Had we attempted to land at high tide, all of those dangerous defenses would have torn us to ...
