I fell in love with Honfleur, and again thought that it would be wonderful to rent a place and stay there for a period of time. We had a short walking tour of the city and learned a lot of its history.
|This harbor scene is the subject of many paintings.|
|The Cock and the Ass Shop|
|The bench reminds me of a work by Picasso|
|A view from the quay at the harbor opening. Boats must wait for a draw bridge to open to head out to the mouth of the Seine River. There is a set of locks beyond the bridge so the water in the harbor is not impacted by the strong tides.|
|Narrow streets and leaning buildings|
|Gate going into the ancient jail, or perhaps I should write gaol|
|Advertising sea sickness medication|
|If you look at images of Honfleur posted online you will find many just like this|
|A pretty restaurant|
The highlight of the visit to Honfleur, at least for Mr. Dreamy, was a stop at one of the seafood shops where they served a half-dozen oysters and a glass of wine for 10 Euro.... my glass of wine was only 3 Euro.... I'm not an oyster person!
