After the trip we wandered around the many waterfront shops. I bought more fridge magnets and a hanging ornament for our conservatory to go with our other ones from different countries. Roma and I had a beer in a waterfront bar – it was so hot we had to sit in the shade.
In the evening we went for pizza in another very quiet restaurant – how do they make money here? €43 for the five of us including a bottle of vin rouge – not bad value again. On our way back to the villa, Roma and I stopped off at the “Le Galicien” Spanish restaurant for a glass of wine – a nice way to finish the evening.
I had a call from HOG Assistance today telling me that Macadam Moto are “very busy” and that they had not yet looked at the bike. It will be next Tuesday before I get further news.
I had another call (sooo popular!) from both the Irish Embassy in Paris and the Irish Consul in Cherbourg. They have kindly offered to open the Cherbourg office on Sunday 13th July for me to give me an emergency passport. Assuming I have a bike to go there in time – this is great news. Great Britain – please join the Schenken Agreement so that we Irish can too!!!
