Tout est au top grâce à Philippe et Lily : spots merveilleux et plats exquis. Grand merci !
Merveilleux passage du cap des 60 ans à la poursuite du soleil et des mouillages, grâce au capitaine Philippe, guide serein et rassurant, au rythme des merveilleuses créations culinaires de Lily.
Nous garderons quelques pensées nostalgiques lors de nos virées bretonnes que nous parsèmerons de petites attentions, profiterolles, tartares parsemés de baies roses et sésame, au milieu des hissages de grand voile.
Bon « tout » pour les années futures.
Un grand merci à Lily et Philippe !
Everything is top-notch thanks to Philippe and Lily: wonderful spots and exquisite dishes. Many thanks!
A marvellous passage past the 60-year mark, in pursuit of the sun and anchorages, thanks to Captain Philippe, a serene and reassuring guide, to the rhythm of Lily´s marvellous culinary creations.
We´ll keep a few nostalgic thoughts for our Breton jaunts, which we´ll sprinkle with little attentions, profiteroles, tartars sprinkled with pink berries and sesame seeds, amidst the hoisting of the mainsail.
Good luck in future years.
Many thanks to Lily and Philippe!
