    Windy Crossing to Calais !!
    • On arrival at Dover ,we realised that it was more windy than we had experienced on the drive down!!!! We checked in ,and learned there was a delay to all sailings ! But we ended up on an earlier crossing , also delayed!!! Once aboard ,armed with sick bags we settled down and awaited departure!!! We refused to let our granddaughters go out on deck,for obvious reasons,but watched while other parents took their own youngsters out there!!!! A slightly choppy crossing took us across the shortest route to la belle France ,and with no time at all ,the girls were home ,looking forward to seeing their parents !!!! Cheap and easy crossing makes life easy for grandparents! Thank you!! Would love more choice of food !! Sandwiches for example!!! Bagels with smoked salmon not a favourite at all!!!
