Back to the UK

It was a wonderful few weeks in Brittany – walking and exploring. I loved the churches, the Enclos Paroissials, and the comfortable gîte was positively luxurious – we are returning next year!

On our last day in France we had visited the D-Day beaches and cemeteries and were close to Ouistreham, dinner, and the overnight ferry to Portsmouth when a text message arrived telling us we had been switched to Cherbourg! Not good news for hungry and tired people. Once in Cherbourg we enjoyed very good steack & frites in a café at Cherbourg harbour and then started queuing for the ferry – two hours to get onboard! And so we returned to the UK, our French affair over until next year.
