We really enjoyed the Tapestry when there almost two years ago when COsta Pacifica called to Cherbourg. Only criticism is that they dictate the pace rather than you taking your time to study it, if you so wish.

Did you know there is one in Fishguard also?

Who is cooking tonight?
That is the one thing I don't like about s/catering - the home from home aspect of cooking for oneself, not to mention the wash up! :(

We're very fortunate in that all the (grown up) children love to cook. We just look after the grandchildren while dinner is being prepared... ;-) Oh, and Fred likes to clear up afterwards. :-)

This morning we went into Vire town centre, which is near where we're staying. There was a big street market on and it was busy but not very interesting. There's a castle ruin in the town but little else of note.

So we went back to the house for lunch then relaxed for a while...

Image

Then we went to an activity park called Viaduc de la Souleuvre where we watched bungee jumping and similar scary things. We had a great time although we kept to more sedate activities such as the luge. :-)

Image

On the way back to the house we stopped at Carrefour for more food. They have brilliant shopping trolleys! :-)

Image

We hope to visit both Mont St Michel and St Malo tomorrow.

If you haven't been to St Malo before Dave then the city walls are well worth the walk.

We were there in June with Wen & Paul. We didn't go to Mont St Michel as we had been there before but it is also worth a visit if you haven't been there before. Enjoy your day.
