    Honfleur

    September 2 in France

    Crossed the channel on bright sunny day - sea flat calm
    We travelled to Honfleur after a slight detour to St Omer
    Cycled into Honfleur and were reminded that the French have a great pride in their towns and cities. The town was beautiful and buzzing with people in restaurants all around the harbour. We walked along the Seine to get a view of the Pont de Normandie which is quite spectacular.
    Cycled to Beuzeville up a long hill to see the typically French market and enjoyed the 7k free wheel back to our site.
    Managed a bit of sun worship by the site pool and enjoyed planing our route south.

    Warmer in Honfleur

    May 17 in France

    190 miles today. It started really cold so we wrapped up and left the hood down Mandy looked... well wrapped up!. Lots of motorcyclists passed us on their way to Le Mans for the motto GP - we will be passing Le Mans tomorrow. We crossed the Seine on a lovely bridge at La Havre then dropped down into Honfleur - a warm sunny and stunningly pretty town. Thanks Gay and Christine for recommending it! On our walk we came across a barge being painted blue. Take a look at the photo of the man working on it.
    Honfleur is quite touristy but not too busy... We found an interesting large wooden church....I've never seen such a big wooden structure.
    Stopping for a beer we met a group of English cyclists from the BASCC they have ridden 171 miles in 4 days so far this week and are having a great time. They are all either in or retired from the army. Hope you make it home safely guys!

    Honfleur, France

    September 10, 2017 in France

    We went to the historic town of Rouen which is the capital of higher Normandy. Our two hour guided walking tour included visits to Renaissance buildings, a Gothic cathedral and the Old Market Place where Joan of Arc was burned in 1431.

    Honfleur

    August 6, 2016 in France

    Our lunch stop couldn't be better. Romantic little town by the sea, Honfleur. The sun was shining, seaguls were singing (ha, right) and we got the perfect spot for our table by the pier. The views were perfect! (we saw the raising bridge going up and down when sailboats came in to this small harbour and from distance we could see the big Pont de Normandie bridge)

    Honfleur

    August 30 in France

    Honfleur is a pretty well preserved medieval fishing village, now more of a tourist town. The first pic is the old harbor, surrounded by former homes of fishermen. The second and third are St. Catherine's church, a 16th century wooden church. I didn't know there were any. Then a view over the city from Mt. Joli, a look through a gate on prison street and a medieval street with the drainage in the center.Read more
