Driving to Deauville


By to my lovely room and off out of Paris to Giverny - the very beautiful home of Claude Monet. Serene - inspiring - peaceful - photos & words can't describe it!

Monet's house - kitchen (old range, blue tiles) - Bedroom (French windows opening out over the gardens).

Gardens - massive sunflowers - cottage style - butterflies - peaceful.

Water garden - lillies not out.

Can understand where he got his inspiration from.

Rouen - capital of Lower Normandy - elegant spires & soaring Gothic Cathedral - narrow streets lined with timber framed houses, elegant, picturesquely askew, medieval - magnifco visit. After the visit of the Cathedral, coffee & cake for lunch in the square.

Honfleur - WOW - lovely - please take me back here!

Carousel on the harbour - WONDERFUL art gallerie - picturesque - small boats in the harbour with the town enveloping them - delicious chocolate crepe.

Would love to have stayed.

Deauville - seaside resort - picture perfect - small boats everywhere - American film festival awards are on tonight - celebrities everywhere. Houses are exquisite - very snap happy with the camera.

Dinner at hotel tonight.
