Last nights sleepy spot
N51.2614 E1.10016 Park n Ride Canterbury
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 ….
