October 9th, 856

First we took a carriage all the way to Calais and then we waited for a few days until the sea was calm. I had never seen the sea before and wished Louis could have been there: so much water! When we boarded the boat, the King got nauseous. He puked during the whole trip, I could hear it from the next door cabin. I didn't feel a thing and even went up on deck for a while. I could see quite a few boats.


  1. Can't imagine never having seen the sea, but then I was born in a house overlooking the sea. Lovely view of the White Cliffs of Dover now that is a sight I would love to see for myself. A

  2. I love the photo, too, and would like to see the cliffs myself some day.
    You're doing a great job here -- imagine, the year 856, it hardly seems possible.
    Luv, K

  3. I have never been on the sea but I always think that I could handle it without being sick since I love roller coaster rides! Glad she enjoyed it.
