Made it!  On the road at last, or should I say on the sea.  After some tearful family farewells at the port we caught the 1.30 ferry from Ramsgate to Ostende in Belgium, which means we’ve missed out France.  Have to get it on the way back.  

A grey and drizzly day but a smooth and easy crossing.  Arrived in Belgium 6.30 pm local time and drove for a couple of hours before looking for a campsite.  Eventually, after asking a few people, a kind young man led us in his car to a campsite near Neerijse.  By now it was 10.30 and the site reception was closed so we parked in the entrance by the washblock and slept in the cab.  Front seats very upright and leg room too short.  Resulting in a very uncomfortable night.
