Today was the big day for us to cross the channel and head into France. we would have loved to swim across the channel and it would have been sooooo easy for us but Charlie Helios doesn't float so had to go by ferry. A good trip over very calm and very quick. It only takes an hour and a half to cross. After leaving the ferry we quickly settled into driving on the other side of the road and headed towards the park. the garmin took us there once again. After setting up we went for a quick walk into the village. Called in the local pub, nobody there only Isabelle the barmaid whi spoke no english and our french is pretty bad, however we managed to have a good conversation none the less and had a lovely chat with her. Tonight we will have our dinner at the restaurant another treat.
Tomorrow we hope to catch the train and visit Lille.

I will be interested to know if the bloke on the campsite video is still there - well done today as the driving on the wrong side of the road must have been a novel experience.
