FRANCE - St Omer


Our new sailing boat has interupted our travel dramatically. The cost of owning a boat means you have to use it to justify that expense...

The early morning always looks great across the bonnet of a Mercedes....

However, sooner or later the wine cellar (our garage) would be empty so for a pleasant day trip with Jayne's mum and dad, we crossed with P&O from Dover to Calais and spent the day in and around St Omer, about 45 minutes in land.

The main purpose of the trip was to stock up the wine rack, but of course, any day in France would be incomplete without a meal in a typical local French restaurant.
This we did, though it was a challenge to find anywhere open so early. We made it back to the ferry port early and boarded a waiting ferry. The result was that we were home an hour early.

Having taken the camera, I don't know why I did not use it - only two shots enroute to Dover...I can tell the photograper in me is emerging again.

Before drinking....honest.
