A beautiful sunny day in the UK turned into an overcast and rather rainy day in France. Rather the reverse of our last trip. The spray on the peage is horrible and taken with the wind that's sprung up a bit nasty.
Luckily the whole trip was uneventful, the way we like it and we arrived in St Riquire to find a fun fair, complete with dodgems and a merry go round, just outside the Abbay at the Hotel Jean de Bruges, the place "we always stay" when in Abbeville. It is noisy but we are assured it will shut down by ten!
Our first dining choice, Le Auberge du Pont is (unsurprisingly) closed on wednesdays which is a disappointment as it was excellent last time we were here. On the other hand also rather surprisingly le Cafe de La Abbeye in the square boasts a rather nice, homely but quite acceptable restaurant out the back.
Overall a very successful day.
