Roscoff Day Trip on the Flying Machine

On Saturday, myself, my boy Arthur and Mr KKK-took-my-baby-away (The Kelbinator) went on a little ride to Roscoff, in Brittany, France and back. It was a bit stormy and the captain of the boat, the Normandy Express, decided to go the scenic route by steering round all the big waves. This reduced our tourism time by 45 minutes, but even so, the trip was interesting.Most of the shots here are for The Kelbinator’s benefit, as his uncle likes dinging bells, or something. Also, please note the Health and Safety measures being taken in Roscoff port. This is for Brucie-baby who hasn’t had a heart attack yet to my knowledge….

This is the church in a picture taken in 1857. I don’t think things happen very quickly in the town
