    Just a big thank you to the above at Fareham near Southampton, who let us park on their carpark overnight when we came off the Le Havre ferry at 10 p.m Wednesday, they even said make sure we parked under their security camera so we felt safe, didn't have to have a meal or a drink, though we did go in for a glass of wine. I was so surprised how helpful they were, it just goes to show that it pays to ask.

    We did that in Scotland a few years back. We couldn't find anywhere to park and it was dark then we saw what looked like a works car park. Sandy went and asked at the cottage and they were fine with it. ::bigsmile:
