5 SEPTEMBER 2130 CALAIS FRANCE

Today was a good day. We got up at around 0830 and got ready and then walked to mcdonalds for breakfast. Came back and packed up and headed to Stonehenge. Traffic was crazy. It was supposed to be a 90 minute drive but it took us probably close to 3 hours to get there. Was very crappy at times. Slow moving. But we made it there and it was fun. It was really really cool to see. We toured around there. Let Logan roam free and he kept us busy. I had to grab him once out of the area he wasn't supposed to go to. There is an audio machine they give you that gives you more information as well. Parking is included in the price of entrance so that was nice. Then we took off for Folkestone to catch our eurotunnel ride back to Calais. I had us booked for an 1850 show up for a 1920 takeoff. We got there at 1720 and when you do the checkin it said we could go on the 1750 for no additional charge so we hopped on. Was so fast. It is way more environmentally friendly and I think we got screwed on the ferry cost. We paid the 190 to go over and 180 to go back. Very expensive but hey, holiday right. We are way over-budget on this holiday. Can't imagine if we were trying to do it 5 stars. So then we got in to Calais which is one hour ahead of the UK and then we went to supper and now we are vegging in the hotel.

Tomorrow we will head to Germany most likely and try to find somewhere to relax for the next week.

That's all for now.

Love Rae-Lynn, Paul & Logan.

Hey Girl! Just finished catching up on all your travel fun! Sounds very busy but at least you're getting to do everything on your lists! Hope you find a great place to relax in Germany with Paul and Logan! Just saw Tikka and Bear at Gill's last weekend and they are both doing great! Bear is just a lovely cat and Tikka was friendly as usual! Kept waking me up with alternating wet nose and whacking tail in my face! LOL
