CHERBOURG, and the northern coast of Normandy
Today was a pleasant ride through northern Normandy along the coast. Cherbourg was all but bombed flat during WWII so everything dates from the end of the Forties. Cherbourg is a city full of history but largely confined to books, not its architecture. So we opted for a tour of the countryside.
Lots of picturesque old French villages:
And forts and lighthouses:
And we came back to the ship with our guide telling us that we had a beautiful day for this time of year. So, today there were no "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" in sight.
