Saturday 19th May – we’re up at 5.00am, for the drive to Dover, and the 12.05 ferry to Calais. It’s raining. By 5.30pm, French time, we’ve booked in to our gite, and driven the five miles or so to Saint Valery to buy provisions. And il fait beau. We’re feeling a bit jaded from the long journey and the early start, but there’s a railway to check out – the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme. Tomorrow we’ll take a ride. Or two.
There will be “Rail Diaries” entries – but not for a few days
