Belle Ile certainly lived up to its name, a
very pretty island with lots of streets full of terraced houses all painted
different colours and many colourful shops and bars.
Quite different from the tranquillity of
Benodet as there is a huge ferry and high speed cat that dock in the tiny
harbour and the streets are full of tourists pulling along suitacases, trying
to find their hotels or rent cars or catch the ferry back to France.
We decided the harbour was a bit cramped
for us and we didn’t fancy the ferry wash so we picked up a visitors buoy
just outside the harbour.
The sun finally broke through the fog and
we spent a glorious afternoon in Belle Ile followed by sundowners in the cockpit.
A very sheltered spot from the predicted SW
winds and a peaceful nights sleep……….
