After a slightly stressful train delay we got to St Malo, Brittany. The delay which almost caused us to miss our connection was caused by a crane dropping an object on to the railway overhead supply cable, therefore causing trains to be diverted to other routes.

Lunched there and then set off to find a Super U for fuel and gas. Found that and did yet ...

It is so quiet and gentle that it just sneaks up on you and before you know it you're caught. In fact one family did get caught and had to cross in their winter clothes in water up to their waste. In certain circumstances this can be dangerous actually. Clearly people not used to the ocean. Anway, it was a ...
