    Default Just another beach

    This beach is just west of Bregancon
    Itís a bit unkempt and the anchorage is exposed. But itís unregulated so you can take your boat as close as you like. Lovely sandy bottom and turquoise water. Other than that itís just another beach

    Are you going to hoist sails on those two masts on the bows? Or are they part of a bird protection programme?

    Presumably they allow the erection of a sun shade.

    Aha, not something we see that often in the UK, more likely to be an umbrella

    Meant to say, nice pics. I prefer the unkempt type of beach, seems more natural.

    Yes, one day just before a long trip my wife announced that she wanted a place where she could cuddle her dog in the shade. So I rigged that up in a hurry, you know how sometimes you get something right first time? Iíve been meaning to upgrade it, for example the poles are from a wardrobe for hanging clothes. Iíve been thinking of getting stainless steel but so far all Iíve done is wrap them in aluminium tape! The shade is from a garden centre but if the wind is over 10 knots I have to take it down but that only takes two minutes

    We took one hour to slowly motor to that spot, spent another hour at anchor while my wife swam and then an hour for the return trip. All at displacement speed. After tying up we walked to a restaurant by this beach

    For a lovely lunch. And now I’m home watching E.T. on the telly. Great morning
    This week should be lovely and calm, but busy, so I might just go spend some nights at anchor.
    Enjoy your summer
