May 7, 2006 - Caen Market

Did you know that Caen, France is one hour ahead of Portsmouth, England? Neither did we...so, needless to say, we didn't quite get as much sleep as planned. At 5:30 AM, according to our watches, the ship's wake up call came through our cabin's loud speaker, and we thought surely there must be some mistake. Much to our chagrin, it was no mistake - local time was 6:30 and we were to disembark at 7:15! So, we proceeded to get up and get ready as best we could in our half sleepy state, when in the middle of it all, an announcement was made that...

Jun 10, 2005 - Le Harve

We had time for breakfast and then a quick check of the email to see if there was any news on Coqui. She had been having problems with her back legs.

Apr 28, 2005 - Houlgate - Normandy (D-Day Beaches)

Stopped in Houlgate, just below the town of Le Harve on the French North Coast, was a good place to see the D-Day beaches from. Had a little trouble with 'Pikey', a sign of things to come....not starting to well, but got going in the morning, think it was a little to much to drink the night before, we discovered she had a bit of a drinking and heavy smoking problem soon after hitting France.
