And OFF we go again!!
It was a much more easier Goodbye to everyone on the UK this time, knowing it wouldn't be so long till we were back.
Got down to Calais the night before to make for an easy passage the next day on the Ferry which was very quiet and non-eventful.
We didn't head too far on our first night, it was quite late and driving on ...

Another sunny and warm day and travelling northward we decide to stop of for a last glance at the sea at a small resort called Wissant.
