Finally meeting up
After a great deal of to-ing and fro-ing and misunderstanding we finally managed to meet up with Tim and Nick when they arrived in Benodet today. Initially we had yet another problem. Tim damaged his leg very badly in a fall a couple of years ago and couldn't step up on to the boat. So instead we got Sam off and went for a long and relaxed lunch in town, with an assiette de fruits de mer for me, hooray! (Oysters, clams, whelks and winkles, since you ask). Then we walked down to the beach and watched some of 600 kayakers arriving from a trip down the Odet.
We had an ice cream, another coffee, and then agreed to have dinner on Kalessin with Tim observing from the pontoon. Fortunately Guy managed to lash us tightly to the finger pontoon and Tim was able to get on, and later off, the boat. So we had a pleasant evening.
Weather over the past few days has been very mixed. We have had lots of drizzle, brilliant sunshine yesterday afternoon and warm-ish greyness today. Tomorrow it looks like being pretty gusty but we are hoping that a short run to Concarneau in the shelter of the bay will be OK.
