Just over a week ago Baxi and I returned from England. We left Sunday 30 June, drove to Dunkerque and sailed to England. We were in Wales three yrs ago and an experience
wiser, I decided to spend a day and a half on the journey to Dunkerque. The plan was to arrive there early afternoon and spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach. Well, plans don't always work out. Due to traffic we arrived late, and due to the weather
(strong winds and sand in our eyes) we only stayed for an hr or so. Nevertheless, a great walk and good experience.
We stayed in England for two and a half weeks before
we drove back. First we went down south to visit my cousin, his wife and their dog, Bernie, near Brighton, and after a few fantastic days there (Baxi and Bernie got along soooo well), we drove to the north of Suffolk - actually just 200 metres from the border
to Norfolk. There I had rented a cottage for us that had an ideal location for walks, small historic towns and villages and just 45 min from Norwich and an hour from the sea. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and meeting up with another cousin, her
husband and two sons (Baxi loved playing in their garden!).
Finally, our journey came to an end and it was time to drive back home. Delayed in lots of congestion along
our route, but we arrived home Sat afternoon, early enough to go for a walk and empty the car and sort out luggage.
Who knows if we will be able to make such a journey
again with Brexit on its way ...
