We went to see the Stones!

No not messers, Jagger, Richards, Wood, and Watts, unbelievably, relics even older than them. The Carnac Menhirs, or the standing stones of Carnac. A similar age to Stonehenge these stones have been in situ for thousands of years and are in straight (straightish) lines that travel several dozens of kilometers.

These were just a few kilometers from our current location of Trinte-sur-mer, (up near the Gulf of Morbihan) which we arrived here three days ago after leaving Concarneau, via Lorient and a quick overnight catch up with some old friends from Brighton, Dave and Rebecca.

Here we met up again with our partners in crime, Ian, Caroline and Charlotte from yacht Silhouette, who had left a little earlier than us from Poole and who we will now travel on and off with all the way to the Caribbean!

Weather permitting were off into the Gulf of Morbihan for a few days and up to Vannes before heading off to Les Sables-d’Olonne, home of the Vendee Globe.
