Saturday despite the showers and the cold wind we went to the market of Dives sur mer, which is the next little town. All streets around the old market hall were full with stands, selling clothes, shoes, and different other stuff.
In the old market hall were the food stalls. You could find all specialties of the Normandy, cheese, ham, sausages, bread etc. I bought a goat cheese which doesn't smell but stinks and each time we open the fridge, we can smell it in the whole living room. Must be very good, I'll take it home.I hope we won't faint in the car because of the smell.
I didn't buy anything else because I can find the same things at home.
Then we had lunch in this cute restaurant. I had a salmon pancake with vegetables which was excellent.
The afternoon we spent home, it was too cold and wet to go outside.
Although we are supposed to be in Houlgate, we always went to the city center of Dives, we thought that it was Houlgate, until somebody told us that these are two different towns. Now we also understood why there were two city centers, which had been a mystery to us ! On Sunday I asked Madame GPS to take us to Houlgate center.
There we discovered beautiful houses, a nice shopping street, but all shops closed because it was Sunday, a very nice beach and as usual also a casino !
As it was our last day I had again a pancake, they are so good here, it is also a specialty of the region. Usually it is served with a cup of cider. The restaurant was very cute inside, all in red and yellow and the cider cups also red. After lunch we returned home to pack our suitcases because tomorrow morning we return home.
And while you are reading this, we are on our way to Brussels.
