We had a lovely last evening in Camaret. Having spent the day cleaning the ship below decks, donuting and shopping for provisions we then sat in our dog house in the centre of an almighty thunderstorm which Camaret anchorage appeared to be its epicentre! This was just before we had to pick up Jean-Charles, Sepherine (I apologise if the spelling is incorrect) and Eleanor from the dockside of course. Paul had to bail the dingy and get a bit soggy when he played taxi driver. We met Jean-Charles in Yarmouth 3 years ago when we and another boat with Derek and Wendy became stuck for a number of days due to the appalling summer weather. The 3 boats decided to stay put and we nick-named us the Yarmouth Triangle. We spent many evenings in each other’s boats and in the pub. It was a memorable holiday and was enjoyable despite the foul weather. It was great to catch up with Jean-Charles and meet Sepherine and Eleanor. Sunday dawned and we had to deflate the dingy, weigh anchor after lunch and get ready to take on water at the pontoon. The water pressure was poor and it took the best part of an hour to fill up. Just after 2pm we set off towards Biscay. I’ll let Paul update on the crossing but I just wanted to check in during my 3am-6am watch and say ‘all is well on Aditi’. We’re currently motoring as there is no wind….a beautiful full moon pokes out from behind the clouds occasionally and the water is calm!! Beautiful. We hope to pick up some more wind in the morning. During a particularly lovely sail earlier Paul spotted some dolphins. We raced to the bow and watched as they slowly meandered in the opposite direction to us. Sophie and I stayed at the bow for a little longer and were rewarded when a particularly huge dolphin couldn’t resist coming back and playing on the bow. He then rolled on his side and we swear he grinned at us before peeling off and continuing with the rest of his pod. Amazing. Back to listening to music in the cockpit and looking at a very empty sea.
