Le Touquet Blog Day 1
What a great first day! For once the traffic on the motorway was very kind, although the quality of singing from the the back of the bus left a lot to be desired. After a quick stop for refreshments at South Mimms Services it was onto Dover having enough ‘E’ numbers to keep the energy levels at maximum.
After a short delay at Dover we boarded a slightly later ferry and hit the high seas. For the second time most of the students didn’t miss out on the opportunity to fuel up on ‘E’ numbers galore.
We arrived in France to glorious sunshine and made the most of a fantastic evening. Shortly after arriving Hippotel, everyone quickly deposited their bags in their rooms and was sat ready and salivating for their evening meal at 7pm prompt. We hit the beach for an evening of beach football, sand castle building, gymnastics and good old messing about in the sand.
Both trips enjoyed a casual stroll along the estuary back to the Hotel. By this time bed was calling and as I type this, the laughs and giggling is slowly subsiding into silence and calm.
The students really were fantastic…..bring on day 2!
