Ten U3 and four L4 girls headed for Dover to take the ferry to Calais at 7am on the 16 June. Destination: Le Touquet in northern France. The girls were very excited especially as for some this was their first trip to France.
Arriving in sunny France the first stop was Le Village St Joseph, a 1900 replica village where the girls discovered what life was like in France at the turn of the last century. Next stop, the Boulangerie where the girls tried their hand at making croissants and loaves of bread learning about the methods and ingredients all in French.
Accommodation for the night was a Hippotel which backed onto a racecourse so after dinner the girls just had to visit the stables to feed the horses.
After a traditional French breakfast of croissants and pains au chocolat the girls headed to a beach in Le Touquet where they had lots of fun in the sand. Then, after heading to the town for a spot of shopping and, of course, a crepe and ‘chocolat chaud’ (all ordered in French) it was time to board the coach and head home but not before sampling some traditional French ‘cuisine’. The girls tried snail paté, snails in garlic and even snail biscuits...Délicieux!
