A weekend in France.

Go down

A weekend in France. Empty A weekend in France.

Post  Mr Bridger on Sun May 22, 2011 1:10 pm


Good moaning.

Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once.

After the success of last years weekend away, I have decided to run another one.

Catch the ferry Saturday midday, stay in the Dunkerque area.

Over the weekend:

Do some sight seeing

Visit Tobacco Alley in Belguim and stock up for Christmas.

Then on to Du Panne for a day by the sea.

Catch the ferry back on Sunday at 1800 hrs.

I was thinking of changing the hotel to the other Formula 1 in Dunkirk, a bit nearer the Texas Bar and Grill.

Unless Rob and Chris wish to fight off the local female talent that is.............

No fixed date yet, but it will be a weekend between September 10th to October 8th.

Price £86.00 for up to 3 people sharing a room with a double and a single bed, including breakfast.

Twin rooms are available for the same price.

If you are interested please let me know as there are limited spaces.

Now where did I put that painting of "The Fallen Madonna" with the big boobies................

Good Moaning,

Listen very carefullly, I shall say this only once............

The last ferry ticket has been taken.

So if any one else wishes to come, they need to book their own ferry ticket with Norfolkline/DFDS seaways.

Hunt the Buffalo Grille was interesting, one Sat Nav as sending us in one direction, the other decided to send us to the other Buffalo Grille 3 miles away.

After the meal we travelled back to the Hotel and sat outside drinking beer and wine and chilling out.
Later we had cheese and nibbles, all of this while sat around a candle light table.
None of the locals molested us, which was nice.

Chris bought some rather mouldy French cheese and left it in his room while he went out, when he returned his room smelt like a he had not changed their socks for a week, he decided to leave the cheese overnight in his Scamp, wrapped up nice and tight in 3 bags.

On Sunday we visited Tobacco Alley, funny how the locals speak better English than some of us......

Later we drove into Du Panne , past Niglo Land, (a National cartoon character we were told).
Sunday lunchtime was spent on the sea front looking for a reasonably priced cafe. The first one we tried wanted 12 euro's for cheese on toast, Fred went to the toilet before we spotted the prices and we left rather hastily, poor Fred came back and thought we had deserted him !

Bob was seen stocking up on wines and spirits for Christmas......and the New Year and the rest of the year as well.

All in all a great weekend spent with fellow Scampers, Rick made the ferry on time, the weather was not as nice as last year but still a good time was had by all.

Fred and I arrived back in Newark around 10, Rick and Rose landed at 9

Same again next year ?
