NORMANDY - Our World

I came back from a one week holidays in Normandy yesterday evening, therefore for "Our world" I just can give an overview on what I have seen. I was near Deauville, which is located just opposite of the English coast only separated by the channel. It is a very historical area for wars, each time the French attacked England and also a strategy place for the Normandy landings in WW II.





Very special architecture all along the coast



and the seafront of Deauville.

I love the old sea resorts - with the fading elegance! Lovely ├╝ictures.

Great architecture. With so many wars over so many centuries it is surprising there are any old buildings left standing.

It looks an interesting place to spend some time. I love the photo of the horse and cart on the beach.

I just had to go back and read all the posts about your holiday. I have been so busy redecorating that my blogging time has diminished . I hope to get back into it soon. I was saddened to hear that you had bad weather and a disappointment with the neglect of the historic towns. I loved the pic of Charlie being bored with shopping. He looks a lovely dog. You must talk your girlfriends into coming to warm and sunny Australia. Save up, sell the cats and the husbands.

I did read all the rest of your posts on your trip (that I missed when I took a short blog break to close up our Florida cottage, to travel back, and open our Oregon one). Sorry for all the rain and the rundown state of the historical buildings there, but the architecture stunning and food sounds pretty good. You wouldn't have known you preferred England side unless you had gone here. So now you know!
