Helford Passage Cruise with Cec and Martin – Part Two
Fishing and spuddling.
A nice shoreline.
Frenchman’s Creek made famous by Daphne du Maurier, more fishing fun.
Return trip, the Budock Vean Hotel is on the right (of the houses seen)
I’m fairly certain this is a Warrior (one of Beez relatives) at anchor.
Roger Taylor’s house is in there somewhere.........
House owned by Russians on the hillside, nice rock formations.
Coming up to Cecily and Martin’s House, Bluefields.
My sister Cecily and a picture she took of Martin and Me.
Commercial Dockyard repair facilities for superyachts.
A big girl for Pepe.
A bigger view of Lyme Bay.
An RFA boat just being commissioned with a cruise ship to her right.
Heading back through the anchorage.
I liked Mildred and Rita.
Back to the jetty.
Mission quote near the memorial for Operation Chariot. The plaque reads: Operation Chariot from this harbour 622 sailors and commandos set sail for the successful raid on St Nazaire 28th March 1942. 168 were killed. 5 Victoria Crosses were awarded –.- Dedicated to the memory of their comrades by the St Nazaire Society.
ALL IN ALL A LOVELY TRIP
VERY SAD TO HAVE MISSED THE TRIP
