Well nothing exciting to report today.
Handed the boat back today, loaded up the car and headed north toward Belgium with no fixed plans.
We ended up in Albert which is in the Somme and the centre of a lot of the trench warfare in WW1.
We left Redon at 9.00 and and got to Albert at 5.05 pm and about 550 km later. The trip …
... checking the Visitor's Books at each cemetery to see if we can come across any evidence of the North High connection visiting the same places we have been. This was all we could do of our tour (Flanders Fields Museum in Ieper being closed on Mondays and we have visited the Menin Gate twice for the 8pm service) so we followed Bob Shaw's recommendation and headed towards Poperinge to see the Lyssenthock Cemetery. This was a real highlight of our day. Our visit began in the very ...
... work fault finding. Turned out to be a loose terminal on the start battery. I Was releived to say the least. i had visions of new starter motors etc. and of poor rae having to tow the boat to the next town.....I would have to be at the helm of course. Cambrai is a nice town with a great little harbour for boats like us. well the 20-30m versions. We are tied up to one ...
... is sure to wake you up as you walk out the door. Wednesday was my first 4 hour test: in French. I had to read and answer some questions in French, followed by a dissertation of a Fable by Jean de La Fontaine.

Tried to speak to his uncle who spoke the local "pattoir" accent. no hope. but my new mate said dont feel too bad. he cant understand most of it either. rae chatted to one of the band who said she could come play for the last set. so she toddled off and got her ukelaly and harmonica. the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ibis Albert
We got into Albert late with no bookings so tried the Ibis as we were told it had family rooms.
Very pleasantly surprised to find the family room was two adjoining rooms with only one entry door from the corridor, which gave the parents and adults space from each other.
The rate was great under 100 Euro.
Ate at the restaurant and very good value, feeding a family of four for less than 50 Euro.
The rooms were spotless and the staff very welcoming and helpful.
Would recommend this hotel.
