... the cockpit watching the sun go down. Pleased to say David's dad is home again after another blood transfusion they have a consultants meeting on Wednesday when we will know what ourplans are going to be. Spoke to my mum as well which was lovely to hear her and catch up on her news, mum is always so busy which is great to hear and Sophie was popping around for a cuppa with her. Still trying to get hold of Rachel she is so busy with work but had a lovely chat with her hubby ...
After coming back from Rennes we enjoyed dinner in the cockpit. Just in front of where we are moored there's a bandstand and in the evening around 30 or so people were old fashioned dancing until the late hours. it was really lovely to watch as it was people of all ages.

... cycle around the Carnac alignments. The path led us through some lovely woods and passed lovely stone buildings / barns and cottages.
We also saw an ancient burial chamber dating back 4.500 years which was fully intact - amazing. Unfortunately unable to get good pictures of what is was like inside.
After our bike rides we wandered around the town and low and behold the fish market was still open - so we bought some more langustines and a lobster.
