We did a short trip over to Calais, and a short drive down to Boulougne-sur-mer. It was fun. Quick run through the channel tunnel with the car (I love that you can get an earlier train if you get there a little early), bit of shopping, then down to Boulougne.
The place we stayed at was fantastic. It was called Relais de St Jacques and was in the old town. Probably a bed and breakfast really, but it was just great. Well renovated to keep its very old fashioned charm, friendly welcome and well located. And for about €100 I thought it wasn’t badly priced.
A short walk down to the local restaurants (thank goodness as I’d tweaked my ankle somehow)., where we enjoyed a nice dinner. Betsy had bass and I had a great spicy shrimp dish. Very nice, and again friendly helpful people.
i enjoyed it. Would definitely return.
