Trying out some photo razoring!

The first photo is Mares Tail in Cherbourg, then a view of the river at Treguier. It is a beautiful old town, and so lovely to have some peace and quiet after being in the middle of a raft of boats 5 deep at St Peter Port.
The weather was a bit grey and misty so we motored the first part, initially heading for Trebeurden, then changing our minds as we realised how late we would be arriving. The second half of the trip had enough wind to sail, with a bit of rain thrown in at the end, just as we were approaching the marina. there are strong cross currents here, so the locals came over to warn us to try a different berth from the one we had picked.
We enjoyed a lovely walk through the Bois de Poets, then up to the town centre, which had a huge cathedral,that looked like it could seat more than the whole population of the town. It had lovely stained glass and a beautiful sculpture outside commemorating the dead of the first world war, called "La Douleur" by Francis Renaud. There was also a large iron sculpture of a ring with blue glass stones, which made me think of you, Lucy Scott. We also found traditional woodworking and upholstery shops, and one hand making violins and cellos.
