Sunday 17th February the Cruiser Fleet members, together with friends old and new, packed the club to hear about secret beaches and locations and the best fish restaurants all along the Brittany coast - and Clare and John Mears shared their knowledge with us. The Lounge Bar was so crowded that one member thought he'd arrived at the AGM!
Clare's information was further enlivened by a skittish display of her photos, produced by the 'box-fresh' projector. One helpful suggestion was that there "might have been a loose nut somewhere" but Arthur merely chuckled...
The audience felt that Clare's descriptions were, "absolutely spot-on and brought back many happy memories" or "put Biscay on our wish list". Another member is "anxiously waiting retirement to go and visit the best spots" and one couple commented that they had covered the same ground "but from the land side, visiting each marina to eat, and, yes, Pornic is lovely!"
Another member who is intending to visit this very area during the coming summer, reckoned the subject came "just at the right time for me and provided exactly what I need to know."
Finally, in case the Mears and the Heasleys find time hanging on their hands, several people thought they should compile a list of the best fish restaurants in the area for publication on the website.
Final comment - "Lovely Custard!"
