Dunkirk. Signing off with a whimper…

Posted

Tuesday 30 July 2019

In Dunkirk, ready for the morning ferry, with little to report. The last two days have been spent getting here and distracted by trying to resuscitate a failing water pump. I thought I’d been ingenious enough to resolve the issue of it grinding to a stop, but two soaped up shower failures later (ladies, bestill your beating hearts!) I bought a replacement and fitted it myself this time.

Almost inevitably, having banged my way around Europe, I end with a whimper, dull practically drawing the curtain on a wonderful adventure.

The skies have clouded over, powerful gusts rock the van and rain is rattling on the roof.

A choppy crossing is likely tomorrow.

91 days, 5400 miles, overnighting in 5 countries, once again it has been a blast, but now I can’t wait to see my family. Thanks to everyone for keeping me company, I look forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future.

Jusqu’à la prochaine fois; until the next time.
