Ok Railway.Takes a bit too long
The Locals love this train with a passion.Dogs children and passers by stop and line up to wave,you feel like The Queen.It all very good natured though some resentment is caused whengroups of English Day Trippers get reserved carriages.The train is old sooty and the windows pinch your fingers as do the iron gates.The views are rather banal.Weed ridden wilderness mainly with glimpses of The Bay of The Mouth of The Somme.Theres lots of boring hanging around as the locomotive is changed,gets up steam,and goes pretty slowly the whole time about 25mph.The cattle truck on the back carries a surprising number of bicyclesprams and buggies as it serves as a baggage van but lighter stuff such assuitcases etc can be carried inside.The staff are all very docile and friendly.Real enthusiasts theres real pride here in running this antiquated unique service still.All in all the whole thing took a bit too long(1.5 -2 hours) for tired passengers impatient to make Eurotunnel what with the waiting to depart etc.connections and return to England.Theer are toilets always busy and a souvenir shop selling postcards and little tin models not particularly well made at 15 euros.The Tourist Office is opposite.This is a real line used by real travellers.

A pleasant surprise for our first visit
We decided to visit St Valery, having read about it in one of our guidebooks. We got there early and found parking relatively easily. I would think that later in the day and at weekends it might be more difficult to park. The railway which terminates ther

L'affaire de la rue de Lourcine
Alors que nous n'étions plus allé au théâtre depuis la naissance des enfants ( 7 et 8 ans) nous nous sommes dit qu'un petit Labiche joué par une petite troupe serait une bonne entrée en matière pour les enfants et que ça les amuserait. Quelle surprise !!!

Spa With a view
We did the jacuzzi, hammam and sauna tour for 2,5 hours. 40 eur per person. Reasonable in my opinion and what a superb view of the bay of the somme.

Nice way to spend an hour
Lovely trip out to the end of the estuary & back (40 mins, €12 & 8). The company does a combined ticket to Crotoy, boat out & steam train back which we would've taken if we hadn't done the same trip by train a few days earlier. Would recommend this trip but shame the commentary was only in French. Would be nice if they had a written English version or a once weekly spoken one. C'est la vie
