The next two days we drove back up through Portugal, Spain and France, staying overnight just outside Bordeaux in a Campanile, very similar to a Formula One, but it had a very small bathroom in the corner. We ate in the Buffalo Grill just a 5-minute walk away and were in bed by 8:00pm ready for an up and away at 4:00am. We arrived back in Dieppe around lunchtime on the Saturday in time to visit the local Hypermarket and do some serious damage to the credit card stocking up on wine and fresh croissants.
With the time difference we were back in Newhaven by 9:00pm and would have been home in less than 10 minutes, but decided to drop in on Teresa’s sisters and deliver croissants for the whole family before going home. That’s it first trip over, Wow! What a trip.
