11/01/2018 Driving back on 28 December. 2017
Today's maximum temperature 10C, minimum 3C. Rain still on and off I have not checked Nigel's records. All the rivers and lands are flooded so I am told - I have not been out of the house!
Morning of the 28th December 2017 leaving Devizes in the UK. Apologies for the dirty windscreen!...
Arrival at customs in Folkestone, if there is a slow queue we find it and we did again!
Thirty minute delay as a car had broken down on the Chunnel train!!! We ended up travelling in a truck train instead of the double storey car one.
Passing the mining basin at Nord-Pas de Calais, a World Heritage site.
Remarkable as a landscape shaped over three centuries of coal extraction from the 1700s to the 1900s
A drive by sunset just before reaching Arras.
Arras by night walking to the restaurant for dinner...
Not great shots as all hand held...
We walked around part of the town the following morning, not feeling well even then, so there will be some photos from the town in daylight. The problem is now with my fuzzy head I am not sure what building is what!!
I will not be posting daily as I still do not feel up to it but getting there slowly.
