I See the Sea & a Few Other Things Too

by in france, travel

It’s been about 15 years since I’ve seen the sea in Normandy, so a brief escape from Rouen, a breath of fresh salty air, a long walk and a quaint village was exactly what was needed to soothe my soul last Sunday. Good company, a picnic and even a stop at a castle made for an interesting and refreshing day out in Normandy.

    Beautiful images! Always have a weak spot for the Sea! I never knew the sea in Normandy is so amazing and blue. Wish I was there!
