Rainy Kent...

Just got off the Chunnel to the welcome of constant drizzle, Croatias heat and dust seems a very long way away :(.  At least we get a pleasant "re-entry" with a few days at Center Parcs.  Tonights luxury accommodation is to be Fleet Services!!

Spent the day visiting Gins great grandfathers grave in the Ypres Cemetary Extension and then on to Tyne Cot cemetary, the largest Commonwealth War Cemetery.  Very moving and incredible to read the stories in the Visitor Centre at Tyne Cot.  Also incredible how many cemetaries there are in the area and to think about the scale of the destruction and loss of life.  Will leave it to Gin to put it more eruditely!!
