After a good nights sleep we were off on our last journey before getting the train back to the UK. Today we are heading for La Touquet Paris Plage 2 (All the Aires France North top of page 203). We used to stay on the other aire just up the road but due to me being hospitalised after a food poisoning incident it has bad memories for Angela!
This aire we like as it is not too far from the Eurotunnel Calais, it has 100 spaces so we can pretty much guarantee a space for the night, and it has some pleasant walks from here. There have been some recent comments about faulty hook up points but as it is only for a night we do not bother.
The drive was 268 miles and took us 5.5 hours so we arrived with some daylight still left. It is only a five minute walk into town but we walked along the road bordering the sea area towards the other aire then went through a wooded section onto the beach. As we were nearing the town centre we could hear lots of engine noises and it became apparent why as we got to the promenade.There were lots of rally cars being prepared for a local rally.
On our way back to the van we walked along the road and dotted along were bays marked out for all of the competitors setting up their cars ready for the race.
As we got back to the van there were other motorhomes setting up. Some with trailers on the back with rally cars for the event. It is a shame we are leaving in the morning as it would have been nice to watch.
