This is John and Adam on the top deck of the ferry returning from Calais. The wind was so strong they could barely walk into it and the waves were hitting the deck below this one! The moon is in the background, although it was not yet dark. The delay was more than 3 hours! All in all a pretty wild holiday weather wise! But it was a lot of fun. Looking forward to our next crossing some day soon!

Windy beach at Le Touquet

The girls were nearly blown off the beach at Le Touquet. This is before the rain started on our 'one night away in France' holiday. Posted by Picasa

People carrier

The Renault Clio has gone and has been replaced with a people carrier (like the one shown here). Ours is silver and it is, for car fans, a Toyota Corolla Verso! We are a one car family now with room for 7 people. John and I went to pick it up on Saturday then collected the girls from their Guides camp in it. They and Adam love it and despite its size compared to the Clio, so do I! It will have to work hard for us as we have already been to France in it and this weekend, head off for THE NORTH....In the meantime, John is taking it away over night to see some friends of his and to have a little 'me' time.

Wednesday ladies

Recently a postcard arrived from Kurita san, who has been in France. She mentioned that the Wednesday ladies sometimes read the blog. Thank you, I was delighted to hear that.
It means that I cannot be lazy and must always think of something interesting to tell you!
All the best to everyone, I have many fond memories of you all.
