Gravelines – France (again)

Tuesday 14th June 2022.

Well here we are here again, 23 days since we were here last. Todays journey was 149 miles of motorway driving across Belgium and France. There were a few spaces when we arrived and we chose to stay on grass this time, when we went to the pay machine it wasn’t working and a woman sat outside her motorhome shouted to us “ ist Kaput”I don’t think she was English.

We now understand the defensive layout of this town is the same as Bourtange we visited in Holland, star shaped with a double moat for extra defence. This town is also connected directly to the English Channel via a tidal estuary.

Tidal estuary.
Outer moat.
Inner moat.
Gateway to town, solid bridge would have been a drawbridge.

Well tonight is the last night of this journey, we have enjoyed it immensely and seen and visited some wonderful places. You know it’s time to go home when you are down to the emergency toilet roll😂

Until next time …… au revoir.
