This is part of the sixteenth section of our
around the world trip.
Complete Trip Overview & Map
Coming from the Netherlands (via Belgium) or read our previous visit to France
26/8/10 Two streets back from the beach the Le
Deltaplane Hotel is old with character and our room, just out of the
summer season is 28 Euro a night, not much more than some campgrounds
in Norway. In fact we were upgraded from a shared hall bathroom to an
ensuite as the place is empty. Still no sunshine and drizzle rain most
of the day making the beachside look forlorn but there were still some
hardy souls out in their beachside shanties on Bleriot-Plage. Hundreds
of shacks, built with old railway sleeper piers, secondhand boards, doors and
mostly run down, stretch out along the beach front.
27/8/10 More rain overnight and in the morning as we
are doing our diary, photos and maps for the web page in the hotel
28/8/10 The last of many ferries this trip, back to the UK from Calais.
