Islands, cycling and beaches

We sailed to Piriac sur Mer, where as the pilot (nautical guide book) accurately states that crew start complaining of sun burn and heat exhaustion rather than mildew and frostbite. Piriac is a delightful town where every shop and house is adorned with flowers. A walk through the maze of little roads and cobbled streets is a delight. We cycled on a another remarkably good cycle path to the next coastal town for lunch and back. All lovely and flat and great for little legs (and longer ones on Brompton’s trying to keep up)! Most bike rides somehow end up on a beach!

Another lovely sail onto the Ile de Yeu, plenty of time for stories on deck. So far we’ve been joined twice by inquisitive dolphins coming alongside the yacht, maybe they’d like to hear the Famous Five stories too!
