Visiting Friends And Heading Northwards…

On a long weekend in May, two  years ago Family Kiwidutch travelled to England for a family wedding.

Since we opted for the channel tunnel instead of the cross channel ferry, we arrive first in Folkstone.

One extra advantage of coming to England  via this route is that good friends of ours live in Folkstone and we love catching up when we can.

A few months prior though the husband was diagnosed with a terminal illness,  so now more than ever, every visit with them is especially treasured.

After a short break visiting them and then going to the harbour to visit our favourite fish seller, we get back on the road to head north to Ely.

There are some interesting vehicles in the stream of traffic,  including one truck that had a forklift loader on the back of the truck (none of us have seen that before) and a truck carrying three tractors (both of these vehicles pleased Little Mr. no end!)

We use the Dartford crossing, and make pretty good time, despite the traffic but soon our stomachs are rumbling and we decide to come off the motorway to find some lunch…
