Made it to the Morbihan

As I sit here and write this over lobster and a glass or three of white wine in sunny Priac-Sur-Mare my thoughts are turning to home. Maybe it’s the weather forecast which is predicting rain in the next few days.

Nearly into Le Pouliguen (For La Baule) but stopped by a low tide and a large patch of green on the chart, we settled for La Turballe and the visitors pontoon.  To say pontoon is an exaggeration, for it’s a triangle configuration and you raft until the space is full.  The Captinaire’s rubber dinghy is used as a battering ram to push more boats into the small space.  It’s like walking on water to get to shore, five boats across.

Piriac is well worth a visit, it’s only drawback is that it’s a half tide marina with a flap sill.  A bit like  Watchet I would think , although I’ve never been there.  Tricky to get into with granite reefs all around but fun once inside.

Tomorrow it’s Roche Barnard and that’s going to be fun through the Arzal  lock. And then up the river.

Internet has been difficult up to now and can’ seem to get my pictures out of Navionics but will try and post some tomorrow.
