Calais is a great place for shopping because of all the ferry traffic coming and going. There is a big combination supermarket/department store called Auchan and it’s a good thing we don’t know what most of the foods are because we would have gone on a wild buying spree. I would bet there were over 100 different kinds of sausage and several hundred kinds of cheese available. They had every fruit and vegetable imaginable. France has the best green beans – we eat them constantly because they are so tender and never stringy. It’s a mystery how the French stay slender. Well actually, I think I know one of the reasons. Portions are very tiny. Some of the yogurt containers aren’t much bigger than a thimble.
Now we are parked a about 300 feet from the beach in Dunkirk in a park like area. There’s a wide boardwalk that runs along the beach for about 2 miles clear to the port.
There are so many custom designed motor homes in Europe. Many appear rough and tough as if they travel all over Africa or Siberia.
