We split the group into two units for safety reasons but we lost the back
       group a few times due to traffic lights. We arrived at our restaurant called
       La Fregate at Ardres that we had used over the last 10 years but it had new
       owners who could not speak English. The menu was all in French. I wanted the
       chicken meal so I had to wave my arms about and make a noise like a chicken
       and it worked.

      The problem came when the cost of the meals all came on the  same bill. I
       asked the lady on the till  whether we could we tell her what we had so that
       we could pay individually but I would pay, or my club would pay any shortfall.
       I was the last to pay and the bill was spot on.

       Our return journey was shorter, so the total distance for the day was
       about 30 miles.

      To summarise: it was a good warm day, good food and wine and most
       important good company.
