She Remembers A Gentle Sea And The River Seine
Last April I went to France and Belgium with my school. There was lots of water involved.
We drove in a coach to Hull. We got on a ferry there. It was quite nice. The rooms were small but clean. It was very windy and rainy that day, basically all over the country.
For lunch we had stopped at a school called Stonyhurst, which is just about the biggest anywhere, and it was raining there too.
