The End of the English Channel

We've had two pre-dawn pontoon leavings, lots of rain yesterday but a much brighter day today. Wind has been so light that we've had to motor a lot, sadly.
It's hard to believe that we are still sailing in the 'channel' but tomorrow we round the most western bit of France and sail pretty much due south. Brest will be our next stop where we pick up Bill and hope for our Bay of Biscay window, to cross in the next week or so.
Learning to live in a small predictable place, with routine and adventure mixed together is fun. A week ago I wasn't so sure but I think I can hang in there. And I didn't wear my fleece yesterday. It's taking much longer than we expected but we're still bound for Spain.
