Le Grand Weekend en France

Thanks to Matt Howes for this ode to a recent trip to Normandy with four other members of the group!

Le Grand Weekend en France
aka  Five go to Honfleur

Five guys met up to go to Normandie one fine summer’s morn
They left from Duxford to arrive in Honfleur
And had the full English as is de-rigueur
There was much seafood & steak bleu
Excellent bières to wash it all down and some vin rouge too
Moules frites with cider and expresso with Calvados
Ice cream and apple tart, but no Crème Anglaise

They stroked cats in cafés
Gate crashed divorce parties
Moved locals from tables
Fought petrol pumps that weren’t able
Watched police race from the scene

There was much complaining about mushrooms
Tyres, suspension and setups
Impromptu off-roading
Lanes with grass in the middle
Fish soup……

There was lots of jeshing & joking too
With tall stories all told as the evenings progressed
Oh and yes we did do some motorcycling too
