Adding some blogs
before I tell you which blogs I will say that all the blogs except one are being added to the
and not the blog rolls on the right of this blog. The reason for this is that I check out the lists on the right almost daily and so keep these lists to a reasonable length. But there are a lot of blogs I recommend but simply do not have time to visit every day or so, especially story blogs that I just wish I had more time to read. These blogs will still be listed on the smart phone friendly page linked above.
Blogs Being Added
This last blog is an old favourite returning. But as it has a tendency to go through a spate of postings and then go silent for months at a time, it will also be added to the Archive Blogs Worth Checking Out list, on the right of this blog.
Hope you all pop in to enjoy these blogs
Fort De La Creche
During my short visit to Boulogne Sur Mer I visited the coastal defence site of La Fort De La Creche. It is a gun emplacement site that was used from the Napoleonic era right up until 1944 in World War II and as a history buff was very interesting to me. It is run and is being restored by a group of friendly volunteers and costs 4 Euros to enter. It is not open every day, so it is best to check it out on the internet before visiting.
The site has been at peace since September 1944, when it was liberated by Canadian troops.
