Oye-PlageApril 26 in France ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C
Oye-Plage is a free aire 20km from the Port Calais, from where we'll catch the ferry for our short trip back to the UK tomorrow. It is a spacious car park near a cemetery and we are fronted into the corner, facing green privet hedges.
On the journey today we had to overcome problems with height barriers (much hated by us motorhomers) to pick up food and fuel, so we arrived later than expected and weren't in the mood for exploring. The car park was quiet and the sun shone on and off while Will spent a few hours trying to replace the worn out gear change on our tandem. In the end, it required a whole new chain, so that particular job will have to wait.
It was homemade pizza for tea, a quiet night and a 10am set off for the ferry the following morning. See you in a few days!Read more
