We're off again!

Shorter trip this time though, want some "downtime" so less mileage.

We sail at 17.50 today, which (with time diff) means we'll arrive about 20.30. Meal on boat, prob Le Touquet Aire for the night.

Then (Fri) on towards Paris, but skirting it to the West, heading for Cernay-la-Ville, where we're booked in on a campsite for Sat & Sun nights.

The final stage of the Tour de France will pass very near our site on Sunday.

We'll either take the chairs the 1km on foot to watch it, or if there seems to be room by the road we'll park there like the French do! (The stage is being shown live on ITV4, so we're recording it in case we can spoit ourselves or Roxie!).

 

Monday is where it gets flexible. The plan is to head for the southern side of Brittany, but we'll check the 5-day weather forecast before we commit to that direction. If we're not convinced, then we'll head a bit further down the west coast. The main reason we're doing a second continental trip is because the weather was mainly bad in April!

 

Ferry home is Fri evening 8 Aug., then we've got a week away with church (camping/van again) in Warwick, 11-17 Aug.

 

So now you know as much as we do. Prob won't be logging on whiole away, as it costs an arm and a leg on the mobile phone!

 

Cheers!

Tony

Me too - have a great time Tony - or, if you read this when you come back, hope you HAD a great time. We "found" the Aire at Le Touquet on a recce visit last month so can visualise where you will be for at least one night......

 

I love to read where other travellers are going and also afterwards so hope you will let us all know how the trip went - next best thing to going ourselves I suppose, while we wait for our turn.......enjoy Tony! B-)
