We treated ourselves to an overnight stay in St Malo so that we could take down the tent and drive back north at our leisure.
The walled town itself was heaving, so we amused ourselves on the vast beaches and walking around the city walls.
We also walked around the harbour admiring the tall ships and the super yachts.
Super yachts all owned by Saudi Princes of course! This one was so big that I thought it might be our ferry home!!!! I wish!
I don't know which forest they cut down to build the breakwater defence around the town but there are literally thousand of trees driven deep into the sand in front of the sea wall.
The town has many opulent old hotels/apartments dotted on the promenade.
Such fabulous art deco detailing close up.
The next morning we were up early to catch our day time ferry home. We departed at 9.30 am
We sailed past Dinard
It was such a gorgeous day - really warm and calm. We sat out on the deck all the way home which is something I hadn't expected to do. It felt as if we were on a Mediterranean cruise!
We saw the odd lone sailor,
and had plenty to look at most of the way as we cruised past the Channel Islands and the coast of France.
But about a mile off the coast of The Isle of Wight, we encountered very grey skies and the temperature dropped very suddenly.
And it's been slightly like that ever since!! What happened to our Summer? It was perfectly fine when we left! I was sad that our French Adventure was over as we had a great time. But all good things must come to an end. Until next time.....
