Day 3 Canterbury to Therouanne 66m (106km)
Whizzed down to Dover to catch an earlier ferry than planned, then tackled the varied terrain of Pas de Calais. Definitely into bread, cheese and pate country! And soon into the land of ‘champers’. Thanks for all the messages sent to my blog. (Sent by text message).
Now I have access to the internet! Please keep posting messages. I cant reply to many owing to very limited access. Internet cafes have suddenly gone out of fashion (due to wi-fi and iphones), and tis a foreign keyboard, so excuse the more than usual errors!
Guines. Beautiful little village, forever associated with Henry VIII’s foray into foreign diplomacy, at the Field of the Cloth of Gold; you will notice on the mural a pretty good attempt of an “after Holbein” of Henry!
I don’t know why this has been going through my head in tune with the cadence of pedalling: ‘The Pas de Calais is pas de flat’ (stupid I know, but so is turning pedals thousands of times a day!) And having convinced myself of that, here is a distant view of St Omer to prove it.
Lucky to find a gite where I could stay for just one night.
