    We're booked on the tunnel late on the 28th, back on the 6th. Baby sitting duties don't allow any longer!

    Any suggestions where we could go, we've two largeish dogs and I can't walk very far (and can't do hills at all).

    We originally thought of Amsterdam, but it's high season at the campsites there, and since the street celebratins don't appear to be suitable for dogs we thought we'd try somewhere else. We like beaches for dog walking and interesting towns/villages.

    Any suggestions appreciated

    It may involve more walking than is comfortable but given this is the centenary of the start of WW1 you could visit some famous parts of the front within a stone's throw of Calais. See the map on this website: http://www.greatwar.co.uk/places/ww1-western-front.htm#mapwesternfront
    There is more detail of the relevant bit here: http://www.greatwar.co.uk/places/ww1-western-front.htm#liegenamurmons
    And explore other areas, including the Belgian coast here: http://www.greatwar.co.uk/places/ww1-western-front.htm#liegenamurmons

    We're out on the 30th, back on the 3rd with 2 dogs going to Honfleur via somewhere else that I forget.
