A day trip to Calais

Article text
On Wednesday we went to Calais to meet the Dehennin family who are the new owners of Ridley Xsara. We travelled on 'le Shuttle' which is very quick and convenient - especially if you are travelling with dogs.

We went for a lovely meal together - and of course, because this was France, Charlotte came too. No worries about leaving her in a hot car. The lovely waitress in the restaurant even made sure that she had a bowl of nice cold water to drink.

All too soon it was time to say our goodbyes. I am very happy that Charlotte will have a lovely home with Raymond and his family in Brussels, and we hope to see them all again soon.
