Sunday 13th April - West Wittering to Portsmouth (If we are going to turn back now’s the . .)
Budge joined us on the early morning leg to the Crown and Anchor at Dell Quay (third puncture came en route but into a quick routine by now). Moriah joined us for lunch which included a final intake of English cider (just for something fresh in the mouth when it came to Brittany comparisons).
The sun shone brightly on a quick ride to Portsmouth and, we got ourselves ensconced at our usual pre ferry emporium. Slow loading for the St Malo ferry, not helped by arsey Boarders Staff - when did you last see cycle tourists removing panniers to be sent through a scanner? Pizza on board, Scooby on the top bunk, as we all prepared to ‘cruise’ not ‘sail’!
