3 hrs to Thurrock,way ahead of time so coffee at services. Bad move. As we came out a truck had caught fire before the bridge and led to over an hour delay. We were offered an early train so took it and ended up in Calais at 4:00. 30 mins drive to our fave little site in Licques. Omelette and frites for tea washes down with Organic Cotes du Rhone at £2:50 a bottle from ...

Purchasing a few beverage and goblet souvenirs from the breweries, Emma then took ...
After breakfast, Frankie and I cycled to the Aldi shop in Handzame a few kilometres from the house. We bought a little top secret something for family at home. Cool easterly breeze behind us as we rode home again. Billy finished his "homework" and we set off north to a German military cemetery near Diksmuide.
