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.
View of the beach and les Falaises d’Étretat.
Normandy garden apples. Might be used for pie, cider or Calvados.
A Manfred favourite, a local award winning cake: Tarte aux pommes – Normandy apple tart.
Beautiful blue and white garden flowers.
Every day we ate delicious cheese like these.
Amazing orange flower.
A French/Normandy delicacy, that we had for lunch one day: Moules frites.
View of the Eiffel tower from the car as we are coming back to Paris.
