Kel blogging today! So much daylight in the UK! Its light at 5am and still light at 9pm. Even though we were awake at 5am, I totally refused to get out of bed until 5:30am. Had a lovely shower at Carls and a nice cup of tea. Had a light come on the dash of the motorhome. I've named the motorhome 'Charlie Helios’. The manual stated that it wasnt a good light to come on incase the engine went into lymp mode. Found a dealer and it was only a small problem so got that all sorted. Made our way to Dover which was about a 1.5hr drive. Spent a few hours at Dover looking around and even did our first tourist attraction... the Dover Castle. I bought some fruit and YUM! The strawberries were something else! Way better than aussie strawberries! From Dover we caught the Ferry across the English Channel to France . My goodness that was interesting! A few security check points, they looked through Charlie Helios and asked us a few questions about where we are going. There were lots of trucks, cars, motorhomes and wanabe cyclists in their sexy lycra! A lot of everything happening everywhere! It was all go. But it was great to park Charlie Helios and make our way to the top deck of the Ferry for an expensive crappy meal and just relax for 90min and let the world pass us by. I was hoping to see a whale or a dolphin but nothing... just lots of big cargo ships. But we made it to France and found an awesome campsite...totally awesome! Bonjour to France!
