EPIC LITTLE ADVENTURES, SHARED.
They warned us the cabin was on the basic side of ‘rustic’.
What they didn’t mention was the blossom arch from the gate to the door, flowering poppies littering the floor, Gerda the garden knome, the dancing light through the stained glass, the welcome note scrawled on the board in the kitchen, the scandi wool blankets we could pile high on the lawn and lie on the afternoon sun… so content.Read More
A little road trip through a pretty region of France ; Emma&Pete have a heartwarming ceremony in Saintes, we ride our bikes in the rain around Île de Ré and we climb Mont Saint Michel, the walled monastery rising out of the sea!Read More
Whilst the mischievous Mistral winds kept us at bay in Bandol we hopped on a train and followed the line to Marseille.

For all our Jersey crew, imagine a larger version of the Echrehous, crawling with tourists. As we were scoping out the busy situation we scored big time as another boat departed leaving us with their anchor spot, which seem to be as rare as hens teeth.Read More
The following morning the Douane showed up. We are registered in Jersey, which is outside of the EU and VAT exempt, so we have restrictions on how long the boat is allowed to be in EU waters. A little daunting when they come knocking but four burly men in uniform wasn't a terrible way to start the day.Read More
