DAY TRIP

Travelled down sunday morn,arrived 2 hours before sheduled booking as was warned of delays at passport control on the ferries.

No checks ,and no one even in the uk control box.

Arrived at check in,£20 to change to next ferry in 10 mins,or free of charge if we waited 30mins,so took the later option as we were in no rush.

Up to adinkirke and then back to calais,called in at pidou,very quiet,they had stoney cape wine 3 ltr bag in box for £4.50,was prob the only cheap stuff in there worth buying.

Down to the warehouse near the docks and past the illegal encampment,very intimidating but we locked the doors as we drove past and videoed them ha ha.

Plenty of bargains at the warehouse,sorry dont know the name,but eezy posted the link/address up somewere.

Lots of loose wine for £1 a bottle,some good stuff,south african red 14% de boun roun i think mits called.

Echo falls with damaged labels £1.50 a bottle.

Scrumpy jack cider april 15 dated 24x500ml £5 also john smiths same 24x440ml £5

Plenty of other stuff aswell.

Back on the ferry,passports checked by a very pleasant uk bf,seemed interested that there are still a few bargains to be had on wine and beer,never mentinioned cigs of bacca.

Back in dover,we were the first car off,kept in the right hand lane this time so didnt end up the hill,

Plenty of ukbf about,but we were not stopped,did notice a bit of activity in the new search area,and saw at least 2 ukbf sprinting out of the sheds,not sure if they were chasing someone and didn't hang about to find out ha ha.

All in all a pleasant trip,fully stocked up on wine and beer now for a few weekends away camping.
