We started the day with a traditional breakfast of croissant, stick bread and le chocolat chaud, before heading off on our 4 mile walk into Hardelot.
In Hardelot we spent time visiting the local shops – using our basic French language skills to help us purchase souvenirs – before heading down to La Plage to enjoy our picnic on the beach. Sadly Mrs Crowfoot had forgotten to book the sunshine, it was a little on the breezy side (to say the least) and we had a few showers too. Of course, being British, this didn’t stop us from enjoying the beach.
We then treated ourselves to an ice-cream or slush drink, and most had a ride on a ferris-wheel too. Re-energised we then ‘happily’ tackled the 4 miles back to the centre.
For dinner this evening we sampled some traditional French dishes: snails, frogs legs and cheese tart. Most of the children tried these and liked at least one of the three – frogs legs were surprisingly popular!
Finally 8pm local time – and what we’ve all been waiting for; England v Croatia – Sadly not our night, but we had great fun watching it together.
