Windy but bright
Ode To a Day Out
47 Associates went out for the day
By shuttle to France, to Le Touquet
The weather as usual didn't fail
We had wind-sun-rain-and even hail.
At the shuttle we waited as is the way
But normal procedures there was adelay
The journey was good,to France we did go
On arrival in France the wind it did blow.
Le Touquet, in sunshine and breeze
The houses and dwellings spaced out in the trees
The place itself was a posh retreat
In days gone by for the Paris elite.
Casino and promenades the order of the day
The weather held off I'm glad to say
The time spent there was go with the flow
Like lunch the French way, ever so slow.
Returning to Calais our driver named Neil
Suggested a stop how did we feel?
The stopover was nice, but a little short
But trains wait for no one so back to the port.
At French customs we stopped and we did go
Our passports checked over but ever so slow
Everthing was OK so off we went
Back on the shuttle to England and Kent.
Arriving in Essex at the end of the day
Everyone was weary,it was a long way
All day the rain missed us, so everything fine
After our long day in France a nice glass of wine (or 2)
