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 ...
Rain or drizzle all day, 13-18deg, 40km, av. 14km/hr, tot. 1291km. Awoke to the pitter patter of rain on the windows, but seeing we've got a stopover it doesn't matter. Time to just lounge around in bed and wait for a 8am breakfast. We are staying in our first B&B, an old converted three story mansion about 800m from the city centre. It's decked out beautifully, no expense spared, and our room is quite large. No soccer hooligan in this neighbourhood. Peter, who owns and ...

Late start which I justified by thinking I was waiting for rain to stop but really I just couldn't get going. Feet hurting now. Strange how the blisters after day one are not really a problem after a few more days. But they are replaced in my consciousness by a new group. Mostly round the toes, one in particular looks like the nail might not make Rome. More pain from large blisters on the balls of each foot. They are painful not just ...

Tea at 7am, 8.40 ready to go and it just started to rain, so full waterproofs on for first time, but not heavy otherwise we would stay put. Saw our first small cruiser coming towards us instead of big barges and they happened to be British so we had a wave to them! Their home port might have been Southampton as its registration read.
We had our first lock and all OK – getting used to the fact they do not have places for us to ...
