Oh no more boats, I am feeling sick. Need to lie down!!!
On our merry travels again decided we would follow the coast and check out some scenery, even managed to miss the toll roads
1) Honfleur via cash point(very expensive place)
2) Caen
3) Mount St Michaels - wonderfull sight as you drive along the coast and a must visit if any of you are passing by. These french monks certainly put modern builders to shame. What a stunning monastry and small town surrounded by fortified walls and tidal seas, accessed by a causeway. Spent 2 -3 hours here exploring winding cobble streets.
5) St Nazaire, what a bridge we crossed here. thought at one point we were going to have to push the Kangoo.

As we followed the coast road as much as possible we came across some great little villages and towns with some interesting names such as Michael chef chef wonder what happened there when it is open for business town sign said come back in May, Think the town had been evacuated do they know someting we dont ?.
Stayed the night in Pornic nice little town, nice boutique hotel overlooking small harbour.
