Last week – we made a day trip to France – driving through Picardy and Normandy from Calais to Dieppe – we had no plans but drove along the A16 to Saint Valery-sur-Somme – beautiful place in the Baie de Somme with a small vintage steam train that takes you all through parts of the marshlands difficult to reach in other ways. And also at the top of the small town – the old town and remains of fortress where Joan of Arc was held before being taken to Rouen. This was meant to be the end of our journey but took wrong turn and arrived in Dieppe and very nice French Mc Donalds – they don’t sell veggyburgers.
One of the most impressive things we saw driving back along the A16 motorway was the ‘Ecoducts’ or ‘Trame verte et bleu‘ – green bridges to help animals cross over the motorway – and improve biodiversity. There were quite a few.
