The things you see and how you travel there - Written by Caroline
The idea was that we spent the next few days sitting by the van recovering, but the site isn't close enough to the sea for us and so we go looking for it.
Etaples is a small fishing village on an estuary mouth. It is Good Friday and so the first thing we come across is some members of the congregation of local churches doing?! the stations of the cross
Since Etaples isn't close enough to the sea for us, we decide to walk to it. Tourquet is seriously posh. Clean and empty of people and cars We walked five miles and came across the most expensive looking of houses (you can tell from the enormous windows).
We thought we were already impressed, but then we entered Etaples. I could add 10 photos of the impressive and odd archictecture (one house was a small replica of a castle!).
And after a five mile walk - we see the sea
Moule Frites later we take a wander home to crack open the the bubbly, that we'd saved for our first night in France, but had been too grumpy up until now to appreciate it :-) Pete, Sue and Lily had given it to us last year, when it was finally confirmed we were actually going away in Nerys.
