Well, I don't know..... I go away for a few days holiday, (after returning from Cherbourg) and you lot are all bickering about restaurants.....

Here are some light hearted reasons why we didnít eat at the Fuchsias restaurant ....

1) We were only there for a light lunch on the way home having eaten a huge meal at the Logis de France in Cherbourg the night before.

2) I had intended to go to Barfleur anyway, (but the swim from the visitor mooring buoys was too far so we opted for St Vaast at the last minute)

3) The man who drives the ferry to Tatihou told us the marina gate would close at 2:30, (and we didn't arrive till 12:00, so we didn't have much time)Ö even though the sheet I had said the gate should close almost an hour later!

4) I fancied moules and frites, (not chips)

5) We are tight sods, (but thatís not the point!)

6) We can go there next time.... which we will!

Thanks for the info though, Dirk..... (Do you look anything like Burt Reynolds by the way???) Actually I think the restaurant guide is a great idea.... Whatís the point in having a RIB if you can't eat well?!

Does the Fushia do moule as a starter?

Before leaving Cherbourg on the way to Barfleur, (or St Vaast as it turned out), pretending to know what we are doing!

Hi Mike

Hi Mike

Nice pictures. I expect the CD will arrive today, thanks

It was a nice run round the Isle of Wight on Saturday pity I did not take my camera, we could have had some good shots but there will always be another time.
Kevin, it was good of you to join us
