Our first full and unbroken nights sleep since before we left NZ. Quite a relief actually.
We decided to start going south towards Baye from the Le Boat depot at Tannay. I had sworn after last time not to use Le Boat but they seem to have gobbled up all the other operators so there is little choice. It has to be said that their rates for ‘extras’ are usurious. The bikes (which you need) and fuel are all extra and the prices are very cheeky. You just have to get over it.
We took lunch at a small village and bought more bread and other supplies then on to Chitry-les-Mines for our night stop. Dinner of escargot on board to start and then a steak and chips at the chippy in the port.
