Two More Sleeps

Then we will be off to 'The continent' sounds posh, we are heading for Dover and taking the ferry to Dunkirk. I have my fingers crossed that we have a peaceful crossing with a beautiful calm sea with not a breath of wind.
The plan is to leave here around 6.30am, to allow for the M25 rush hour car park. Our crossing is at 10 but we have to be there an hour before. So then a calm crossing to Dunkirk, where we will hopefully drive to the huge hypermarket just outside Dunkirk. Here we plan to buy supplies and lunch, We are staying at a Sunparks complex near Dunkirk. The whole weekend has worked out at around £100 each including the return ferry crossing, the accommodation and petrol.
On Saturday we are going into Bruges to the Christmas market which is held in the grote markt. Bruges is a pretty city surrounded by canals, with cobbled streets and horse and traps. I want it to snow on Saturday and lie long enough for some photos and then disappear straight away afterwards!!
Sunday is undecided at the moment, a nice chill out day perhaps. Monday we will head back in the afternoon. I am looking forward to it!!!
