I was a little bit worried about getting back to the ferry in time – so we set off very early – well at 0700. It was still dark when we set out to collect John, but luckily by the time we got to the hairpin bends it was in daylight.
It was lovely – the valleys were still misty – unfortunately due to me driving at about 10mph with a queue of manic drivers behind me, we could only stop in the middle of the road and take one decent picture!
Here are a few pictures from the journey – not a lot to say really – I was hands clenched on the steering wheel!
We stopped at Carrefour in Thionville to do some serious shopping, and to wake me up as I was beginning to struggle.
Luckily this, and playing selections from Yes and Nirvana, took us all the way to Calais with only one more stop in Luxembourg for diesel.
We were two hours early for our ferry booking – but John decided to pay the extra for us to get the earlier ferry – we were just about the last ones to get on the one in port – although with the appalling signs at Calais that was more luck than judgement!
It was a great time away – thanks John!
