France 2016 - Day 2

Boulogne-Sur-Mer

Wow! What a busy day on day 2. It all started with a lovely breakfast of freshly baked croissant, pain au chocolate and as much fruit as we could eat. Fuelled up for the day ahead, we set off to more misty views of the lovely French countryside.

 

 

Our first stop today was a sweet factory. Our host explained all about making sweets and demonstrated the traditional methods of making sweets. We were happy that they translated into English for us so we could all understand and we practised our French as we helped to make the sweets.

We then moved on to explore the beach, we found shells, built things and jumped in the soft sand.

 

 

We have been very lucky with the weather today and had a sunny picnic in the park - a few seagulls tried to eat our lunch but Mrs Blackwell fearlessly chased them away!

 

Another short hop on the coach took us into the old, walled town of Boulogne-sur-Mer. The traditional cobbled streets led to the impressive basilica. We walked on top of the city's ramparts to see the view over the city. By now we had done a lot of walking and some of us were a bit worn out. As we passed a local crêperie, the smell of delicious crêpes filled the air so we stopped for refreshments. We all ordered our food in French and enjoyed the delicious pancakes.

 

Luckily, it wasn't far to the coach and Graham took us back to the Chateau for another delicious dinner.

 

Later we are taking part in some French bingo and we might even eat a sweet or two!
