Left the campsite around 12.00 and went non stop to Honfluer arriving at 3.30 so it was chill time with a bit of sunbathing and and a brew before exploring the fishing town, returned around 7 for a barbeque and then it was time to get ready for a few drinks in the port.The aire was €9 for 24 hours and included electric and all other facilities and has the usual boulangerie van calling in the morning.Honfluer is well worth a visit if your on this coast and has an array of seafood eateries(i'm not into seafood so not for me) but found a cheap bar just off the main st and enjoyed a few pints of their finest beers.

As Honfluer has no beach headed south in search of a bit of beach,had a quick look round Deauville/Trouville which lookes very nice but decided would go as far down as Houlgate and see if there was anywhere better.Villers sur mer did look a very seasidy place but was not camping friendly and even though had lunch on the quay at Houlgate it did not seem as good as the towns of Deauville/Trouville so it was back up to there and found a place on the rather small aire (room for about 8 vans ,free with elect).There were many vans parked on the Quayside and the only restrictions seemed to be no picknicking signs . Spent Sat and Sunday here with a very nice meal overlooking the beach and got in a bit of beach sunbathing.We moved over to the pier for the sunday parking as it was a bit closer there is also a massive sunday morning market that runs right down one side of the pier for the bargain hunters.rAs the ferry was 10.30 on monday morning left it as late as possible at Trouville (6pm sun night) and then set off for the return to Calais.A couple of tolls on the way ,normandy bridge €5 and a stretch of m/way€6.70 arriving about 8 at Baie de somme where i used the showers courtesy of a very pleasant cleaning lady who got the keys (think they are meant for the lorry drivers).Decides to get a bit closer to Calais and find a chippy as had run out of gas and so couldnt cook.Had a look at Le Tourquet but it seemed expensive and a bit out of the town so called at a Mcdonalds on the edge of town and carried on to Le Portal at Boulogne
which has had a revamp and is now an aire across the road which is barriered and has a €4 charge payable via credit card.
Monday 28th June Up at 8 and a quick breckie and down to Calais for the ferry.We were spot on time wise as we were straight on the boat and back in the uk for 11 ish (uk time).Stopped at the park and ride on Dover rd in Canterbury £2.50 and free bus into town and spent the day sightseeing in Canterbury leaving at 6pm for the trip home which despite a few holdups on the M6 and a stop at the services at Northampton took 6.30mins.
