I remember visiting friend in Nancy in N France years ago and apologising for my poor french when buying quiche lorraine. The boulangerie owner said at least I did not sound like a ParisienA lot of Britons say they feel more similar to Anglosaxons (preferably Celts) than to the average rest-of-France people, or worse God-forbid-Parisians
I don't see how even citizenship is relevant? Surely you are subject to the laws of the country you are in? End of? Otherwise, how can different driving laws be enforced on foreign nationals, for example?I can't see how UK laws apply to someone with different citizenship in their house in France.
Exactly, when i'm in france I don't care if boris tells me to stay home at night it's what nice M. Macron says that I listen to.I don't see how even citizenship is relevant?

Pretty much the same here in Southern Brittany, restaurant staff all seem to be wearing masksHere in Boulogne sur mer, France, my marina office informs me there are no restrictions at all on yachts and crew visiting French ports and moving from port to port.... France is almost back to normal.. In my street all the bars and restaurants are open as well as room rentals.. If you visit a major supermarket then there is little or no social distancing, few masks and the checkouts are as normal except for plastic screens around the checkout girls.. Some smaller shops do only allow one or two people in at a time and occasionally demand a mask is worn . Other than that it is all pretty normal except for the sad site of business's that are closed never to re-open
I have not seen the need for rafting, it is still very quiet. There were open spaces on the visitors pontoons everywhere I have been. Some German, Dutch and Belgian visitors, a few French yachts on the move, that’s it. The French holiday season has not started yet and of course no U.K. yachts yet
I sailed from the Vilaine to UK in early June and it was a lot quieter than usual. Rafting forbidden in Arzal lock but not an issue anywhere else as there were plenty of berths available. The usual large rallies by Breton clubs, which normally invade marinas, aren't taking place.
There was some rafting at the weekend on the visitors pontoon in Quiberon, we were also rafted in Arzal lock Sunday, I would agree that there are slightly fewer boats around but there is a slowly growing number of Dutch and German yotties appearing here in Arzal and a lot of camper vans on the roads.
