... wanted to eat! The only place was a brasserie (bar) which sold food. But no fresh seafood. To make matters worse, on our search for restaurants we walked by fresh seafood stands where local fishermen were selling what they had caught fresh that day. I wish we were staying closer to Normandy! Seafood that fresh would have been amazing. I don't think it would have fared well on the three hour journey back to Paris... ...

There's very few visitors in the inner basin - we're pretty much moored up in the same spot as last time.
We're hoping to head off in a few days heading west, but the wind is proving to be on the nose (as usual). We're thinking of taking the boat to Caen via the lock and canal.
