Just back!

Dover/Calais day trip with the car, £23 + 6 free bottles of wine. Unfortunately got caught in the aftermath of an accident on the M26. This morning the south-east is one huge car park, horrendous.

Drove off the ferry last night and 2 BF were on the lanes and others in the shed. All standing rigidly to attention in their own bays waiting for business. Didn't see any cars stopped and I suspect they were waiting for the coaches of which there were quite a few.

I should have added particularly for Dave's benefit with regard to a thread elsewhere, whilst I did not get sight of the new BF uniform, the high viz being worn was clean and respectable. Not like his BF colleagues at some other ports!

Re: Just back!

Just back, Dover/Dunkirk ret. Plenty of BF standing around, we obviously didn't fit today's profile and did not see anybody else stopped either.

We moan about P&O ships but DFDS prices are on another level! £5 for a packet of cigs over the bar, coffee nearly 3 quid, £19 for 1ltr of spirits in the shop. Food in the resto was rubbish as well.Very slow to unload at Dover as well, I thought.

Mentioned elsewhere that we were at Adinkerke last night at 7pm local time. The new Real Tobacco shop was open but not the shop itself so no browsing, just the evening till to take your order. Stop 'n' Shop was open and the only other place on that side of the canal was the 'Gnome' shop on the corner opp the garage. All other bars, choc shops, chippy's and tobacco shops were shut. Don't know if that's the norm of an evening in Addy or what.
