      Castle Hunt

      July 4, 2023 in France ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      Saint-Valery-en-Caux and the entire coast of Normandy was impacted by fighting during the Second World War. Our morning stroll took us through the historical part of town left standing after bombing during the war, to a war memorial and to the top of the limestone cliffs. In the afternoon we saw both the castles of Miromesnil (16th century), along with its flint and limestone chapel, and Arques-la-Bataille (11th century), with the surroundings now being naturally 'mowed' by goats. How fascinating to be in a place with such an abundance of castles! We enjoyed moules frites for dinner, but had to work for it, running through the rain both ways, with a drenching downpour on the way home that left us all giggling as we splashed through the puddles.Read more
