On a really fine summer's sunday afternoon we board the P & O ferry at Calais and head across the great divide again back to the UK

The white cliffs of Dover seen from the harbour at Calais

Big bore exhausts

Always a sad sight, looking back to the continent

I have to say that we much prefer the Dunkerque-Dover route with DFDS
The P & O ferry was grotty to say the least and extremely busy so guess we'll give the Calais route a wide berth in future

A couple of days later and we are nicely settled in at Dethick
The spot could not be nicer and I would say it has a natural beauty factor of 10
The 4x4 you see is our runaround transport for the forthcoming weeks to enable us to go see my Mum without the hassle of driving around in the van
Massive thanks to Michael who's lent us his car for the duration

Views from the van door

The route past the church to the village

The future….

Info for tourists

Within minutes Martyn spots the holy grail
Alas the gaff was fermé

Its legal but probably too small for you son

Heaven sent we find the local cake emporium, surely a feature of the next few weeks strollin'

More flowery things..

Tucked away, a piece of lost England

In the distance a mole is spotted tunnel digging

What a pleasant jolly this was
