away days

Last week we took a three day break in Normandy, which, happily coincided with the 'heat wave'.

A splendid trip on Brittany Ferries from Poole to Cherbourg.   The sea was so calm I sunbathed on deck all the way.   There were dolphins in the outer harbour at Cherbourg.

We didn't travel too far, just an hour away to Port en Bessin, via Bayeux where this poster was spotted

empty beaches

colourful shop in St. Vaast

Barfleur harbour

at Cape Barfleur the magnificent phare de Gattevile 
one of the highest lighthouses in France

apart from the big towns and fishing ports France appeared to be empty
beautiful golden beaches to ourselves, wonderful country side
suppers at a small cafe in Port en Bassin watching the fishing boats coming and going

nice to be busy doing nothing
