Today is the first day of our French hols. We woke up at 3:15 in Dover and crossed the Channel at 4:30 on a P&O ferry (Only 10 minutes late) Perfect conditions, pleasant people on board..Steven noticed that if you wanted WiFi you had to pay £3.OO which is strange considering the crossing costs £ 200. When I drink a latte in Costa I have free WiFi.
We stopped on the aire de la Baie de Somme but noticed that the café crème didn’t taste as nice as usual. The site is wonderful though and the ducks quacked joyfully!
As we headed towards Poitiers I couldn’t help gazing at a sky of a different beauty; as if there were finger prints..
So nous parlons français et nous avons fait une promenade en bicyclette du camping jusqu’à Civray.
Bonne nuit bénie mes amis.
PS Meet one of the goats doing freely in the campsite!
I’ve meant to write this post for two weeks now! My cousin came to visit us in Stafford. We went to Oxford (previous post) and she was very keen to visit London, off we went. I drove there and by twelve we were desperate to find a free parking space in Highbury. In the end, we parked in the uni halls. After lunch in Southbanks, we decided to walk up to Tower bridge along the Thames. I must say that I misjudged the distance, it took us about an hour but it was worth it. We brought back Imo home and then it was time to go.
As we left it late to leave we arrived home at 2 am. My cousin managed to sleep during the drive and I thank the Lord it was a safe trip!
Just a few photos!
