Plinth mounted eagles outside the museum.
It's quite impressive...
...and somehow very German!
Looking NE across the fields.
After that we had a quick stop at the local Carrefour supermarket to stock up on essentials (wine, beer, chocolate...) and then off back to Calais. By now we realised we were running a bit late and it would be touch and go as regards catching the ferry we had booked so my right foot was a little closer to the floor then earlier. All was well until 30 miles short of Calais the weather closed in - the rain varying between heavy and torrential. As a result we (just) missed our boat and had to wait a hour for the next sailing. Back in Blighty the precipitation continued most of the way across the dark and busy roads of Kent but we arrived back safely in London at half past midnight.
