(visited by Hans Augdoppler)

04-May-2002 -- After crossing the channel by ferry during the very early morning a rest on the beach was necessary. And where, of course, close to a CP, in the village ‘LES HEMMES DE MARCK’ a beach named “Plage des Hemmes”.

Just after sunrise I walked down of the dunes across the tideland. Awaiting the oncoming high tide I came as close as ~80m without wet feet. Since this is the ‘Strait of Dover’ you see ferries frequently.
