A Two Day Journey to Paris
It's a long way from Northumberland to Paris so we stopped overnight at Folkestone where the Channel Tunnel is located. I have never been to Folkestone before and I was amazed at how gorgeous it is. One of my favourite sights in English seaside towns are the bandstands and this one didn't fail to impress.
We took an evening stroll along the The Leas which is high above the sea shore and lined with trees which keeps that chilly wind from the Channel at bay.
Peeking through the trees we saw strange boulders in the sea
which we later found out were breakers to keep the sea from these fabulous gardens
They even erected a statue to Harvey for our visit. Shame the bird came and crapped on his head.
Today we arrived at Charlotte's new abode, no this isn't it but a fabulous house in a neighboring town. We sat at a Cafe opposite and drank cafe and Pastis. Look at those windows on the top floor
and a gorgeous ivy clad house at the end of the main street. Shame rather large Frenchman got in my way.
Tomorrow I am off for a day in Paris with Tara (Paris Parfait) where we will be visiting Merci and oh how I will wow you tomorrow. Bonne nuit.
