As it was a rest day, little happened. Nonetheless, readers are respectfully offered the quintessence of a marital relationship in: Jackie: Are you coming to help me choose a new book? PeteR: I am sure that I would love to.
The St Helier marina was busy.
One of its many niceties was the Beaufort Scale rendered in paving stones. Force 12 is normally described as: “Hurricane >64mph Wind capable of carrying boats short distances”. The Jersey rendition is shown below.
Useful activity included passage planning for Keith (Wednesday) and Jackie (Saturday). Careful, non-invasive examination of Jackie’s waypoints showed that her route from Dartmouth to Brixham would pass through a local caravan site.
The rest of the day focussed on food (nothing new there). Lunch for Phil, Keith and Richard at a cafe next to the Royal Yacht Hotel. Royal Yacht Burgers and proper Stella Artois hit the collective spot. Sue enjoyed a luxury Jersey ice cream while window shopping. Jackie made a sensible sandwich and opened a box of Pringles but did not eat it all (the author is advised that this is significant). PeteR, unsupervised, purchased a ham and cheese baguette which he cheerfully described as monstrous.
Dinner of fish chowder and strawberry meringues (two courses) was prepared by Richard. The day ended with a visit to the pub for beer and whisky and later a portion of chips for Phil.
