The intention was initially to drive through Norway to arrive at the North Cape for the summer solstice on 21st June following which I’d drive south through central Europe.. Apart from that there was no plan.
A clear run to Dover, straight through French border control and UK Customs to the check in where I bought a ticket for Dunkerque. The price was somewhat more than if I’d paid online for a later sailing but the ferry was about to load so I was able to drive almost straight on.
After arriving at my overnight stop at Leffrinckoucke I had moment’s upset when I tried to relight the fridge. “Oh dear me, I wonder what has gone wrong?” I asked myself.
Then I remembered I’d turned off the gas when I topped it up on my way to the ferry, and of course left it off for the sea crossing. Turning the gas back on allowed the fridge to relight and all was right with the world.
The following morning I visited the Operation Dynamo museum which is housed in the evacuation HQ. Operation Dynamo was the evacuation of some 350,000 British and French soldiers in the spring of 1940 during to opening stages of World War Two.
