Destination:- Le Touquet (Camping Car Park, Merlimont).
2 hours 30 minutes, 133 miles and €24 tolls.
Todays drive started in glorious sunshine as we left Honfleur over the (Cable stayed) Normandy Bridge. https://www.pontsnormandietancarville.fr/lhistoire/pont-de-normandie/le-pont-en-details/ This soon changed and became a bit more challenging due to the weather conditions. It was either foggy, snowing or misty.
In recent years there has been issues near to the port of Calais with certain people trying to get inside motorhomes for a free passage to the UK. For this reason Le Touquet is always our last stopover in France before getting the Eurotunnel back to the UK (approximately 1 hour drive).
We know of two other motorhome stopover places in the area that we have used but decided to try this one out.
It is a lovely little site on the coast of France facing northwards towards the English channel with long sandy beaches and sand dunes.
When we arrived the site was covered in snow so we had to drive really slow to get on the service point to fill up with water and again when we parked up.
We went straight out for a walk to the beach and around the village before getting back in the van to warm up and have something to eat.
Tomorrow we will be back in the UK 🙂
