Got up this morning after a few beers in the Hotel bar in Abbeville to lovely blue skies, hurray!!

Set off to Dave Lords at Wanafly, just north of Limoges, first hour was fine with a tail wind and scattered cloud at 1800ft until the Rouen river the cloud base started dropping until about 5 miles away from an airfield called Bernay where cloud base suddenly got lower and started filling in to complete blanket cover.
