French Trip 2017 - Day 1

What a fantastic start to our French adventure.


We had a really smooth run down to Dover and managed to get into an earlier ferry.  This meant that we had ample time on the beach in Le Touquet.

We saw some really elaborate sand sculptures.  The children have behaved impeccably throughout the day and were a pleasure to be with.   During dinner this evening everybody tried on the food and even told the hoteliers that it was delicieux.  Now off to have a shower before getting a well deserved rest. 


Jake from Grove has enjoyed his VIP trip to France and is looking forward to his 11th birthday tomorrow in a foreign country

Bonne Nuit,,,
