SUNDAY 6TH OCTOBER, 2013 – We Come In Peace

Out on Willi’s boat, O Mer. The weather was with us, bright and calm and dry between weekend storms here.

In Toulon Bay we strayed over the line just a little as we looped around to head home via a coffee-stop at St Mandrier, and out to greet us came a Zodiac, the guards with rifles ready – really – and we all did our best to remain calm and not look shifty… which makes for the shiftiest looks you can muster, of course. Weapons dropped, a brief, low wave exchanged, and we were free to leg it out of there.

Here are some snaps of the trip.
