The room was nice and clean on arrival. The shower was good as well.
We had a meal in the restaurant which wasn't up to much. We had asked for our steaks to be well done but they were served up far from well done.
There was also no vegetables with the meal, it was just steak and chips. 14€ for the meal and 3€50 for a glass of coke.
As our French is limited, it would have been helpful to have an English menu available as our waiter did not speak any English at all.

13 – ENGLAND... AGAIN!
Yes we have already been to Whitby, but when we were there, it was Dave's 70th birthday and he was inundated with friends, so we didn’t get much one-on-one chat time, so we decided to go via Whitby on our way south. Sadly, we only had a couple of hours with Biddi as she was off to her rehearsals, but we had a great catch-up with Dave. He had the chance to enjoy the culinary delights of Oscar, the ...
... 8217;s Grt, grt, grt Uncle William had been a stretcher bearer in the NZ regiment that saved the town. We walked around and found the memorial to the NZers who had distracted the Germans by creating lots of smoke and they launched a surprise attack by climbing up a ladder they constructed to get them up the wall. It was a hot day and everyone was tired.
We spent the afternoon in a big shopping mall buying some new clothes!
I managed to fit in a quick day trip to Lens to see the Louvre outpost there and also connect with a doctoral student I met last summer. We met there, went to the Louvre, had lunch, and then walked to the top of one of "les terrils" and drank some champagne. It was a lovely day all around. I am fond of coal mining towns because of my own geneology. The town has preserved these large coal mountains as a reminder of the hard work and sacrifice of the coal miners.
... the day walking amongst the Christmas Markets, visiting the sights of the city (Cathedral, Fort, Man Square) and going shopping. Having gone to France on a simple day trip it really became noticeable just how different France is to England, despite it being just an hour's ferry away! And don't even get me started on the stinky cheese! My clothes stank of it all day!
We said goodbye to an amazing little village, Saint Aubin sur mer, by having a special dessert at le crabbe vert ... Imagine! The wind was always howling and the temperature quite cool, but there was something about this place that made it a very comfortable place to be. Liam and I enjoyed jogging along the beautiful stretch of the Normandy beaches. Unfortunately our exercise quotient is not balancing with our chocolate croissant and ice cream intake not to mention it ...
