Goodbye Benodet! We managed to get away on time, the boys were brilliant given the early start, excellent teamwork to do all that stuff you only seem to do in France (e.g. put all the bed linen and towels into a big orange bag). The satnav and ViaMichelin both indicated that it would take three and a half hours to get to St Malo, but sticking to the motorway via Rennes we managed to cut almost an hour off this, so decided to pop into the old town itself to find some petit dejeuner. However, the locals were all still asleep (despite the fact that it was 9am) so we had to settle for some pains-au-chocolat and baguettes for the ferry.

Jill wasn't feeling too chipper (we couldn't decide whether it was my driving or something she ate) so spent most of the journey back laid up in the cabin. The boys were more than happy to wander round the ferry and watch TV for most of the time. Daddy took them to see "Wreck-it Ralph" at the cinema, which they liked a lot (Daddy was less impressed, although enjoyed all the video game references from the 70's and 80's).

And that was more or less that - the ferry was a few minutes late due to strong currents, but as there were so few people on board (we've never been on such an empty crossing before), we were straight off the boat and back home in less than an hour and a half.

So, despite the weather, we all had a great holiday.
