Mark visited Bruce in June 2022, spent two weeks “sprucing Bruce” at Mike and Pinkie’s. Three years of Covid left him feeling unloved. An MOT, service, TLC and all was well again.
Looking forward to starting our 2023 adventure in May. ￼
We can’t believe it has been ten years since our last visit, celebrating Bev’s big 50th!!! Honfleur is still beautiful and it has to be one of the prettiest tourist destinations / ports. . . . . . where the Seine River (of Paris fame) meets the English Channel. The Vieux Bassin (old Harbour) is lined with 16th – 18th century town houses which have captured the eye of many artists including Monet and Boudin.
They must have heard that we had arrived in Bayeux as the shop windows are colourfully adorned with wonderful messages for us?! . . . . Coincidentally it’s the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy! It was heartwarming to see so many messages of thanks from the French to the Allied Forces for their freedom in 1944.
Douarnenez is our next port of call in Brittany – literally, with it’s three historic ports. With the sun finally setting at 10:15pm, we park Bruce up in this street in a cosy carpark, 50m from the port.
The spectacular Crozon Peninsular looks out over the Atlantic and our drive to the summit of Menez-Hom provides windswept views over the seas, lakes, rivers . . . and a hang glider is enjoying it too!!
