From Calais we take the excellent French autoroute to Abbeville where we will stop to 'fill up' both the cars and us.
After this we stay on the autoroute as far the Pont de Normandie where this fabulous bridge 'flys' up and over the Seine Estuary and offers a terrific panorama.
Shortly after the bridge we leave the autoroute and drive in to the seaside town of Honfleur - where we will probably meet up with our French Friends - and here we shall stop for lunch.
Then its a drive along the coast to Caen across the bottom of the Cherbourg Peninsula to Pontorson and the Hotel Montgomery - our base for the next three nights.
