CEYRAT VISIT 2016 DAY 1

DAY 1 - OUR JOURNEY

We set off by coach at 6am - no problem. But as we approached Dover, the traffic ground to a halt - little did we know that two French customs men were processing the whole day's worth of ferry passengers to Europe at a snail's pace!

But we remained jolly, even the children who had the novelty of being allowed out of the coach to play on the dual carriageway! Sam said it was the best night of his life! We shared what little food we had as the day wore by, and at 6pm and only 4 miles from the town centre, a foraging party set off in search of a supermarket to buy provisions.

We finally boarded the ferry at 2am!
