Yet again armed with the 5MP D7 and with the 3MP Canon Ixus v3 (surprise!).
We stayed in a tiny cottage nestling in a valley:
First we visited Bayeux:
and saw the tapestry all the way to its end (they must have had the same trouble I have with video tape recorders!):
Then Abbaye Bec Hellouin and its village
and a last shot from the place Monet used to paint the city
Honfleur (our original reason for the visit - until we found out just how many things were there!):
Mont San Michel (wow!):
Monet's Garden in Giverny:
with the famous Water Lily pond
Chateau Gaillard (Richard the Lionheart's castle):
Falaise (William the Conqueror's castle (much restored)):
Beuvron-en-Auge (very pretty!):
and a final look at Pont de Normandie
as we went home - via Rambures:
A lovely holiday - but very busy: I've missed out loads of places from the above!
