Crossing the Channel

The crossing of La Manche (French name) was uneventful in that no disgruntled workers blockaded the harbor. And it was a smooth beautiful ride. I forgot how close the two countries are- you can see those White Cliffs quickly.  
I am hoping the return journey will be as uneventful. We go back on Eurostar. And they have been having major problems with the migrants trying to get into the Chunnel to walk to England. A week or two ago people were trapped in the train cars as migrants were walking on top of the cars. Yesterday I received an email from the president of Eurostar. (Not a personal one!) he was reassuring the customers that actions were being taken to keep Eurostar safe and running on time. We leave next Sunday at 11:30.
