    As promised, here are a few pics i took.
    After arriving at Dover at 4:00am on saturday morning, we got pulled in for a check by customs !
    Good start but nothing for us to worry about !
    Then as we checked in, we we're told that the van had been booked as a mini bus which was what we always do if there's no van option on the website so they charged us another £57 ! Even better start !
    After the crossing, we set off down the A26. The second van in our convoy had pulled away from us so they hit the first toll about 10 mins before us. They got a 90 Euro fine for not wearing seatbelts (naught-naughty !) It can't get any worse can it ?
    Arrived about 12 noon after getting totally lost, we we're enjoying temperatures in the mid to high 20's celcius and the lake looked stunning but flooded (near the river Marne flood planes). Yes it does get worse !
    This lovely hot weather lasted til sunday evening when the wet weather came in from the south west bringing with it thunderstorms and LOTS of rain ! Resulting in thick heavy clay type mud that sticks like shi7 to a blanket. It got everywhere !
    Anyway, fishing wise was a struggle as the river water that had entered the lake had halted fish captures the previous 2 weeks, the lake owner said 8 guys last week all had zero fish, so we're off to a good start !
    Struggle on we did and on wednesday morning at 3:15 am ( hence why i look like poo in the picture !) i caught a carp weighing 27lb. Result considering the conditions !
    The other fish i caught was a little Pike of about 5lb which i caught on a lure in the margins of the lake after seeing it attack a shoal of roach ! Ha !
    Last but 1 picture is of our base camp which looked nice and tidy on sunday morning when i photo'd it but by Tuesday lunch time we we're cooking in the back of the van as the gazebo was no longer with us. Strong winds and heavy rain took it's toll and the whole thing crumbled - Just like Derby County in the Premier league !!
    Set off for Blighty at 8:30am French time and hit Calais by about noon (ferry was at 2:05pm so we went to City Europe and got some drink and a little pressy each for the wife kids) happy to be getting on the P&O ferry at Calais (SeaFrance ferries are far better IMO, but i didn't book it) and got home at about 7pm
    Hope you enjoyed my very short report, but hey - ho ! weather was against us so you just have to make do with what happens !
    Enjoy the pictures.
