Admin and errands

Wednesday 31 August

While there was still activity aplenty on deck, Mate dealt with some of her pile of admin: post, accounts ledger and preparing some parcels for posting.  The crew cycled into Cherbourg, to visit the large Carrefour for provisions, the post office and the wine cave.  Later the Mate took out her trusty sewing machine to start making some very smart cushions for the cockpit – in red, of course.
