Now officially in Southern Brittany on The Vendee.
Just been robbed for 42 euros in the Harbour office for one nights stay! Bit of a price change in one night to the next.
We went for a bike ride across to the other side of Ile de Noirmoutier to the town of Noirmoutier. An impressive old castle in the centre of town. The island is a very flat place with lots of small and very small cottages. Saw some of the original salt pans where the produce sea salt when the weather is hotter. A change in the weather to come and the barometer is falling. Just had a heavy down pour of rain and the sky looks set for some more.
Oysters and mussles for dinner, still somebody has got to eat them.
A race fleet has come to join us in the harbour some 80 yachts it seems who are off the do the Race des Isles tomorrow a course of 80 miles starting at 1500 hrs, lucky them.
