Ferry to France - Day 4

Continuing from Canterbury to Dover, we arrived at the ferry
at our appointed time to take the "Pride of Kent" to Calais.
The cliffs of Dover at the dock.
Our bus took us to the dock where our luggage was loaded onto
small carts and stored.  We walked onto the boarding area.
Most ferry travelers were in cars or trucks.
Beginning with the Ferry, Austin, Glenn and I embarked
on travels we had never experience before. 
Prior to this trip, Glenn and I had only been to Paris for one day.
The adventures for us began here... 
Snacks and beverages helped with our energy level. 
Packaged Madeleines were in all the shops in France. 
We had lunch on-our-own on the ferry in the nice cafeteria.
Izzy, Candice, Ty, Sam and Austin exploring the ferry. 
When we arrived at Calais, we boarded a bus.
Franz, the driver, was from Belgium (as was the bus).
Franz, after several days of touring, delivered us to our Paris hotel.

My husband loves the Fish and Chips on the ferry to Calais.

He'd take a trip every time we go to Europe if he could. Fish and Chips or the Curry.

How fascinating to take the ferry. We have always taken the train, so the ferry would be a very different way of traveling. Wondering how long it took?
