A few days in Normandie

We went to Normandy for a few days to relax and enjoy the company of relatives. A train ride only two hours away put us by the Atlantic Ocean. Hanging out in the sun in the beautiful garden (temperatures around 30 C) by the pool and be able to swim to cool off was a great break from the heat of the city. We also enjoyed the Normandy food and drinks.
