    There were 4 queues about that long when we came through Calais just over a week ago, we got through pretty quickly though.
    There's always a GB car trying to jump the queue wherever you go.....

    As is everywhere today, Robert.......However, SKEGGY is world renowned for temperatures that can rival Tunis on a good day. And the cockles are sublime!! (y) None of that disgusting and smelly cannonball cheese you get in Vichy Land, just honest to goodness, cancer beating, wholesome pies and chips. Sublime! :):)

    And you should be amazed, Your Honour.....A visit to the sunshine delights of SKEGGY has that effect on those used to eating French muck. :)

    Hi Allanm.
    You are right about the GB car jumpers... However,looking at the angle the car is at in relation to the queue,it might,just might? Be a vehicle leaving the Dog Passport control area that is on that side.. A couple of times i have been exiting the Dog passport area,and "Vehicles ?" Have increased speed to stop me joining a steady flow of other vehicles moving towards the ticket booths. Being as the UK is a nation of Dog lovers,i put it down to some drivers who dislike M/homes...LOL.

    But where do you think people would prefer to spend their holidays, given the choice
    Skegness or say Italy for example? (where coincidentally we may be heading off to in a couple of weeks)

    Thankfully it was only a queue for the security check. Once we had cleared that, immigration was a doddle and we made our train as originally planned.
    Got stopped for an interior check, but that took less than a minute or so. The Eurotunnel approach is like Fort Knox now, and we didn't see any migrants at all.
    We're safely home know, the vans empty and we're enjoying a cup of tea !

    There were warning signs on M20 talking about storms on Monday - we're only back for a couple of weeks. May as well stayed in France and headed off to our new destination.
