The Bay of Biscay

After a week of howling winds we left Cameret-sur-Mer for the passage over the Bay of Biscay - It was worth the wait because you can't have a calmer sea than we got during the passage. Very enjoyable with long Atlantic swells in clear weather. We met Dolphins, Whales, experienced Mareel (milky sea effect) had beautiful sunsets and a full moon that illuminated the sea even at night. We met some resistance just before Gijón with a thunderstorm blocking us, we tried to wait out at sea but it came straight at us so we decided to go through instead and got to Gijón just before midnight.
