CHAPTER 4 OF EELCO'S JOB ON mv Avalon
This time I walked from La Pallice to La Rochelle and back what took me 45 min each way. But before I went to La Rochelle I visited the local market in La Pallice what was a nice one with all kinds off stuff and food for sale. In the second world war La Pallice was a big U boat base . The bunkers where those U boats were moored arestill there . They can not be removed simply because they are to massive . We were just moored in front of them.
La Rochelle was wonderful too and I spent a few hours walking trough the narrow oldstreets and the area around the old harbor. Once the ship was empty on Tuesday we sailed for Cork in Ireland to load a full load of "Waste in Bales "Yes, regular household waste.
