Port du Crouesty, a personal note!!!

I have written on the Port du Crouesty , part of the town of Arzon in the Rhuys peninsula on several previous posts in my blog. I have come here since moving into the area back in 2011, and had great family time over the years. Now coming back missing my dear late wife Martine is sad all nice memories that are worth reliving them again and again.

The reason I am writing again on the Port du Crouesty is because one of my former boss (CFO) from Paris had purchase a boat (30 meters! )and has it base here. He is kind enough for old times sake that each time in the area he calls me up to the boat.  This is an experience I could not refuse as grew up around boats and beaches when young boy and always nice memories. Therefore, I took responsibilities at home with my boys and came to the boat!! It was better than expected!

Normally, we just had a lunch in the boat and get the ride around the marina from a boat owners preferable entries. However, this time he took me out to sea into the wonderful sublime Gulf of Morbihan. I really should not tell you about Port du Crouesty because several posts on it with all kind of information, just do search in my blog. This experience will be mostly visual with new pictures taken on the day; hope you enjoy them as I!

I cannot leave this post without given credit and showing the work of the lifesavers volunteer corps of the SNSM all over France’s coasts/beaches,and at sea. They have taken the ashes of my mother Gladys and wife Martine out to sea burial from Honfleur, Normandie as we all will be. As the braves did!
