August 3rdMade an early start from the Ile de Glenans 8.15am as the seas were flat and little wind unfortunately not enough wind to sail so motoring again not what we enjoy but we need to move south as quickly as possible. Breakfast on the move, toast with homemade bread, jam and marmalade and a cuppa sun out lovely start to the day. David put the line over to see if he could catch our tea...... No luckWe were finally able to get the main sail up about 1.15pm but still ...
... around F5-6 straight on the nose. After a short passage we anchored and stuck the weather out. We've been fortunate all along so one or two days of bad weather is not worth complaining about.
The following day we went up the river d'Auray picked up a mooring and then proceeded by dinghy to Auray. Such a lovely little town. Being a Sunday there was nothing open except restaurants but that didn't matter.
... the German submarine defences, as vividly described by Alistair McLEAN still exist. A bit of a disappointment, really. Large city, nothing at the port apart from blocked commercial entrances and a sailing school beside a vast aquarium, which would have taken a whole day to visit. Not even anywhere there to get some lunch! However, this was remedied at our evening stop at Vannes, where we had an excellent meal, including some of the best steak we've ever ...
... the plat du jour formule, a mixed grill with mash followed by a fraise gazpacho with menthe chantilly (minty flavoured cream on a strawberry purée). Jonathan had Penne Arabica, with spicy sauce and chorizo, and chocolate mousse. All delicious and washed down with half a carafe of Merlot. At 2pm it was amazing to see crowds of suited men and well dressed women suddenly swarm through the town and return to work and the cafe ...
... beside the two towers foR more photos, suddenly realised we'd been there 2 hours and they'd be closing for lunch, so had to walk very quickly back through the forest to the great gate. Which was shut, and the keeper or whatever he was was disappearing into the gatehouse, but he'd left the gate on the latch and we were able to get out and continue on our way to Vannes. The photos don't do it justice, impossible to capture the size and awesomeness - is that a word?
