Nous sommes arrivées!

Finally, we have made it across the channel yesterday. We left around 0600 and got into Cherbourg around 1900 UK time. There was very little wind and what there was, was on the nose of course. Still happy to finally leave the UK after so much planning. Having dinner last night on the back of the boat felt like the adventure had truly begun.

We are now in Braye Harbour, Alderney, sitting on a mooring buoy about to have a well earned beer. Alderney is the most northerly of the Channel Islands and not one we had visited before. Very small and quaint. Have wandered around the main town this afternoon but we managed to arrive on early closing day. It is obvious an island thing as the Isle of Wight does the same. As I said, quaint. Weather is now glorious having started today with mist and fog.

    The main town?…..the only town. Glad that your luck changed with the weather…. It will only get warmer from here on in…unlike the drowned rats here.

    Yay! So pleased for you both. Raining here again 😦

    Keep calm and carry on.

    Congratulations guys on getting off at last. Alderney is quaint but miserable in pool weather. Hotel just by harbours is very good for food and it’s a nice walk out to the lighthouse if you have time. See you soon back in Blighty. Chris & Graeme xx

    Fantastic and well done escaping in that brief period of calm… Enjoy on behalf of the remaining rat race. . Especially those of us soooo looking forward to London during the Olympics. X
