We get our lane number and head through the port

and park up. we have a bout half an hour before boarding.

So I change the Nav disc to the UK one and

put on a video of the Big Bang Theory

to keep us entertained.

eventually we are called on.

You’ll never believe it but its the Pride of Kent again!

We say goodbye to France

and go a get a hearty British breakfast.

We shop watch the world go by and

await to be called down to the car deck.

And pack them back in and get ready

Car is switched on

a few miles covered after this holiday and head up the A2 my favoured route home.

Of course some decided it was going to be a good idea to throuw themselves off the Queen Elizabeth bridge at the Dartford crossing – taking some 3 hours to jump which caused chaos down. I decided to take my old route through the City of London, after all it had been a while since I’d driven it, and low and behold I had forgotten it and without Les to guide me I was hoping somewhat. up the A2 and then t A40 or something not quiet like that happened. We cam out the right place eventually though.

Back late it was time to unload.

Now thats packing and the end of a fab holiday. No more snow this year Sad smile
