    Default Sunday 9th in Cherbourg

    Is anybody thinking of sticking around and coming back on Monday 10th?

    As we are planning a Friday night crossing, we are thinking about taking an extra day of rest. Whilst I enjoy JHR's company, it would be nice to meet up with others if anybody is around.

    Does anybody know if the maritime museum, or any other attractions, are open on a Sunday? If its a hot day, where does the totty go to sun bathe?

    Ah, erm, yes, but I will be out of there by 8am. Having looked at the tides, I fancy nipping round to Alderney for Sunday lunch and a mooch around in the afternoon, then leave from there on Monday morning. Weather permitting, of course.

    Last time we stayed an extra day on the Sunday we hiked up to the fort which overlooks the town and harbour. It was shut!

    We are staying 'till Sunday but leaving around 4.00 pm so as to get the flood tide back up Bembridge early AM Monday.

    Now wending my way back toward Cherbourg, time is on my side so can spend as long as I wish in the area.
    Now in Camaret and will go and spend a few days up in Chateaulin in the hope that this high will give way to a decent SW'erly so I don't have to use buckets of Red to get back (not the sort that comes in cartons)

    Angele's plan is to do the return trip on the Monday.

    Which end of the Solent will you be aiming at? We will want to be at The Needles by 1730 to catch the last of the flood tide.
