  1. Couldn't see the photos on the link but I guess that's because it's a closed group. BUT I did like the set of rules.
  2. Hasn't Baie de Seine already gone back to owners?
  3. On a suuny Sunday afternoon sailing to Roscoff, try to grab a couple chairs in the space by the jackstaff, couple of cold beers and then, the much missed menu item "Lamb Gargantua" in La Cafe du Port. Perfik as Del boy would say!๐Ÿ–๐Ÿท My favorite ship, still have my original Property Owners Club membership card with her picture on.
  4. If the PA timings stay as published, it will suit us very well as we are only 50 mins from Plymouth and 15 mins from Roscoff at the other end. Friday PM out with a meal on board arrive 1945. Sunday AM 1 or 2 weeks later back, catch up on Z's, then lunch on board. With a free Travel Club cabin each way. Our French neighbours (keyholders) can switch on the electric and put some milk in the fridge for us. If we give Fred a ring when we dock, he'll wait a few minutes for us or leave a couple of his essential shopping items out for us for us!! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿพ We can then shop at Super U on Satu
  5. Looks like a Mobile phone/Communications tower?
  6. Hope that the armful of paperwork does the trick Chris, if you try to use the French pet passport, they may spot the that it is not your photo!!
  7. We may be going off topic here Ed, but not as much as FW! The similar has been done to the rail bridge as you cross the River Camel on the closed Padstow branch line in Cornwall. But the Penze Viaduct would be a magnificent cycle/hiking path, and hopefully cost less than 47M euros including building a footbridge to replace to washed away track.
  8. There's an even more dramatic "after effect" picture on the Ouest-France website link showing 50m of sleepered track hanging swinging in open air as Dawlish was. As you say, there is zero chance of it being open again to rail traffic it already had a 40Km/hr safety speed limit imposed. It could however make a great cycle path if the Penze viaduct at Henvic is declared safe enough.

  9. Itโ€™s not too far to walk from Plymouth Ferryport and there are plenty of taxis. There is an almost hourly train service to London Paddington with a journey time of around 3 and a half to 4 hours. Since 2015 the Morlaix-Roscoff line had been under threat, local campaigners had been trying to save the line, working with various tiers of government to try and facilitate its renovation but with a projected price tag of 47 M euros their efforts were proving unsuccessful. However on 2nd June 2018, nature took a hand and the track embankment was washed away due to flood damage and is now closed
  10. Our regular route is Plymouth Roscoff. Both ports give wonderful views of the countries to come from a good way out. Seeing the Ile be Batz on the approach to Roscoff and passing Ever Given close to the breakwater on the approach to Plymouth especially on a high tide with the waves breaking over it.
  11. Her funnel is RED!! so not IF Her funnel is RED!!
  12. Just heard that M. Macron has announced a France wide Lockdown for your arrival. I guess however that in France a wine emporium would certainly be classed as an ESSENTIAL shop!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿท๐Ÿท
  13. Same Ship - Different livery. Spot the difference!
  14. Mine was due to expire 31st Dec 2020, now extended to 31st August 2021, an 8 month extension.
