We had completed 279 miles from home to Arras, in France. Sixty nine miles from Calais to Arras was the most enjoyable, with spacious motorways cutting through farming fields during the harvest season.

If the Aussies had been successful, we could have prevented WW2. We went to the Cobbers statue. Its called cobbers from the story of Simon Fraser, who had the unenviable task of retrieving the wounded from no mans land, after the battle.

Gods be praised, the waiter speaks ...

With a solid 5 hours sleep under our belt, we rose with the enthusiasm of Year 12 students who had been up all night playing WOW. Needless to say the espresso over breakfast helped. Having mastered the path to the Gare du Nord from our accommodation, we made it with plenty of time to grab some water and munchies for the 2.5 hour trip North. Destination - Brugge in Belgium.

It took us about 20 minutes to settle down to the tugging effect apart from continually correct your steering the effects of the pulling on the ropes from the Peniche. He switched his engine on to try and straighten himself out behind the tug and this sent swirls of churned up water on to us causing ...
