    We spent our last day in Normandy by doing a long walk on the beach of Carteret. And as the sun was quite warm and we were alone on the beach, we decided to have a quick swim in the refreshing water. Swimming on October 17 in Normandy, not bad!

    Nez de Jobourg

    October 14, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Finally, after 1 week of sunshine and very warm temperatures, we had some rain. But this didn't stop to discover the area and so we did a nice long walk from the nez de Jorbourg to the beautiful baie d'ecalgrain. To get dry and warm again, we enjoyed some delicious organic crêpes with a bottle of cidre.Read more

    Finally, we arrived at the cap de la hague or "the end of the world". The wild nature and the rough sea really impressed us and we fell in love with this isolated piece of land.
    At a little restaurant Sylvie was finally able to enjoy a delicious lobster (which was a quite a challenge to eat).

    After an early start (before 5am) and leaving our cottage we arrived at the D-Day Beaches just on time for a stunning sunrise. We followed the coastal road along the different war memorials with frequent stops and visits of the sites.
