    After a quiet night on Marine Parade on Sun we got the 10.00 hrs DFDS ferry to Dunkirk on Mon-think we prefer P&O but DFDS was cheaper :BigGrin:
    Stayed at Cateau Cambresis on Mon night then drove to Hans sur Lesse in Belgium on Tues.
    Have to say Belgium seems to be a bit of an inconvenience between France,Holland, Germany and Luxembourg :Smile: Road surfaces were appalling although there did seem to be a lot of resurfacing going on.
    This morning we drove to Diekirk in Luxembourg-nice little town,but nothing special.
    Tomorrow we head for Luxembourg city and an ACSI site just outside,where we will stay a couple of nights and 'do' the City.
    Had lunch in a little cafe today-when I asked for mustard he said that he had Portuguese mustard (tres piquant),then we noticed that tv was showing a Portuguese channel-the owner was Portuguese :Smile:He didn't know JJ personally but had heard rumours of a mad Englishman touring around with an attractive French lady (not really,I'm using poetic license there)

    Some of you might remember that I had a Spinal Nerve Root block last Wed :BigGrin: Am now pain free for 1st time in 18mths :BigGrin: Wonder how long it will last.
    One of 'Jim's' tyre pressure monitors started flashing last night-it was simple matter to put
    4lbs pressure back in with our bicycle track pump this morn. So that's proved it's worth in my book-thanks Jim.

    Mike.

    Do visit the chataux at Clervaux there is a fantastic WW2 museum in the the building and a photo art exhibition up on the hill. One of the best museums I have visited.
