Wednesday in France

Another great day ,  completely different from yesterday.  Today has been glorious, some of us are even wearing shorts.   This morning we went to the local cider maker to find out how cider is made, brandy from cider and cider vinegar.  Mrs Munro  we got you some cider .  Some of the children bought cider vinegar to bring home, it has so many uses  they will be able to tell you all about it.  We then walked up the road to the boulangerie where the children bought something to have with their lunch.  This ranged from chocolate eclairs, strawberry tarts,croissants to     pain au chocolat and someone even bought a baguette.  We had a picnic lunch in the grounds before walking down to the beach at Criel Plage to have a play..  The bus came and picked us up from there and then we went to find out how Neufchatel cheese is made.  Some of the children tasted it and then bought some to bring home.  Whilst writing this they are outside playing rounders for an hour before supper and then a session of archery before bed.   Tomorrow is another busy day with an early start,  breakfast at 7.30 am!!  Then  we are off to Arras and Vimy Ridge.The children have been great , really good listening  and very polite.  We are all having such a good time.  They are going to have lots to tell you when they get home.

  1. Hi all, so glad you are having a great time sounds fantastic!! Was looking forward to lots of photos but I think all Euans are of the sealife centre in Nausicaa! Would just like to say a massive thank you to you all making this possible for the children such a great opportunity for them! I’ve sent Euan a wee email too if he gets the time to read it! Enjoy the rest of your trip and thanks again! Shona Brunton.
