The sun came out for our second day at La Mailleraye sur Seine.
English words ending in ic translate to ique in french, as I understand it. So economic becomes economique, politic becomes politique, etc..
So I felt reasonably comfortable in telling the waitress in La Presqu Ile restaurant in La Mailleraye sur Seine, when we first ate there, that the food was ‘cosmique’. She was pleased, if a little surprised.
We ate there again a couple of days ago and the food was again cosmic.
We have now moved on to the final campsite of the trip…..Château Ganspette at St Omer. ( N 50.81912 E 2.17453) This is about 20 miles from Calais and Dunkerque so handy for ferries and the tunnel.
This afternoon we visited the Epercleques blockhouse, the site of a V2 rocket building facility in the second world war. It is a dramatic exhibition, and has been well done, with explanations and diagrams in French and English.
This is the south wing of the blockhouse, intended for liquid oxygen production to fuel the V2 rockets.
This is the last blog of the current trip; we are heading for the channel tunnel first thing tomorrow morning, then up towards Yorkshire.
