Day 2

7th April

Weather Fog

Last nights sleepy spot

N51.2614 E1.10016 Park n Ride Canterbury

Price £7

Just like an Autumn day .. but the mistiness is fog visibility 50 yards

Not a euphemism but a reality “Fog in the Channel Vicar ”

Hetty decided she didn’t want to stay in Dover for 24 hours for her Pre booked ferry on Monday at 8am

The reason we got here early was a BREXIT problem ..we booked last month and assumed we would be Out ..deal or no deal ..with lorries queueing for miles and causing chaos. ..False News ..Not a lorry to be seen on the M2 going into Dover ..in fact all was very very quiet giving the Driver a hint as to availability on an early ferry .. After having a chat with the boarding guy we would have to pay an extra £65 to go on today sailing ..going in 30 minutes …The Driver had a fit .. we’ll go tomorrow said He .. Look here said The Cook ..If we eat out tonight that’s £50 plus Breakfast on the ferry £30 …now to pay the £65 is a saving of £25….The cooks glass is always half full

Driving through Belgium is The Cook’s black hole ..She hates the country ..She says it’s wet n boring .. The Driver thinks he can get to Luxembourg for cheap fuel .. It’s too far ..even thought the sun is out at last .

Found a stop on the Canal du Centre near a barge lift which fascinates TheDriver ..Unfortunately He can’t be allowed out as it’s a thunder storm ..Massive lightening ..Pouring down .. Big Bangs ..The Cook hides in the bathroom

Supper of home made Spaghetti Bol ..Lovingly cooked at home and transported to Europe

Tomorrow a push south to Karlsruhe On the Rhein ….

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.


    1. It could have been a bigger saving as we normally treat our selves to the 1st class
      Lounge on ferries to get free
      Coffee and stuff ..This time we didn’t so another saving of £40 making a grand total of £65
      I’m nothing but a financial wizard

  1. Bob says he’s now 100 per cent and he’s been proving lately that he’s not mischievous any more! I’m waiting for his complete confirmation…another 100 miles is Bob’s redemption😉
