    The place we chose to meet up was a little awkward as there was nowhere near to park the car with the shopping in, but I managed to haul it all the way back to the boat.

Sadly, we didn’t make that deadline, but we were definitely going to visit Ypres before we headed across La Manche (aka The Channel).
