There are a few toll roads in the Orlando area and I have used Tyre to plan all the routes I need. Hopefully, with an internet connection to my phone, when on the ground in Florida, I'll be able to use the TomTom MyDrive app to load routes up on the 410. I must remember to set the default routing to "avoid toll roads".

A further email arrived with more instructions linked and outlining access to the sites plus how to find the parking. They have sectioned off a long length of road way to the south-east of Zonnebeke with shuttle bus stops to get people from their cars to the Museum area. parking in a herringbone pattern along the road.
Along with this were other links that have given us the parking pass and the seating passes.
Suit still not taken to the cleaners!
Checked that Reggie is booked on his holidays at the kennels from Saturday afternoon until Tuesday morning. He is booked in and we have paid for one night as a deposit. Good job as they are fully booked up until September 3rd with no reserve spaces left. Better check that he is booked there for FL17!
Forgot all about breakdown cover in case the car decides to pack it in. A tenner for two days cover. Not bad I suppose and that includes getting it back home should the worst happen.

Along this section it seemed the main income stream would be from the speed cameras dotted all over the place and the intellectually subnormal speed limits to make sure that the income is high.

Have had an email confirming that we have got seating tickets for the main event at Tyne Cot. The tickets themselves haven't arrived. It's still two and a half weeks away though.
I've been planning a few routes to get to the hotel and then across to Zonnebeke to park the car and look around the museum.
The event the night before in Ypres itself means that we will check in the B&B and our hosts will get us a cab into town. Getting one back will prove possibly more complex.

It looks like that would suit us alright. There looks to be a lot of parking at one of the terminals and then it is two stops and a ten minute walk to the stadium. The train journey is $2 each way and about 11 minutes.

I had thought of going over then but finding a hotel or even a youth hostel in Belgium is like finding that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Unless you have that gold of course. So back to Plan A.
Then see what parking is like in Ypres. There's a special ceremony in the Market by the Cloth Hall. It may be that as Plan A dictates that we go to Vlamertinge to the B&B and back out by taxi, we stick to it.
Monday morning we have to be in Zonnebeke to park and see the museum and displays there. We have been before a few years ago.
It was pre-Meldrews so must have been the other club we don't mention. On that visit we had to park in the entrance way and go in on foot. There was the somewhat odd spectacle of a pipe band competition and Highland games taking place.

- The gardens at Les Jardins du Manoir D Eyrignac, a splendid guided walk around the grounds to see the topiary and other planting.
- To Sarlat and Domme for a walk around the medieval town centres.
- The Village Troglodytique de la Madeleine where we had an interesting visit to see where man lived 17000 years ago until recently.
- Les Eyzies de Tayac for lunch and to look for river access for us and Reggie. None found. We did have lunch though.
Another holiday over. Photos below by place but not necessarily in the order taken as they are from my phone and for some reason out of shooting order:
