We were invited to a family friends 80th Birthday in Normandy so planned a few extra days to visit some of the beautiful places here.
The party was in Le Bec Helloin – a small village famous for its Benedictine Abbey – & so pretty.
We then visited the beautiful medieval town of Bayeux, which miraculously came through the allied bombardment before DDay in 1944 unscathed – amazing when you see photos of the damage to the surrounding area at that time.
We then spent a day visiting Mont St Michel. A totally awe -inspiring place. It should be on everyone’s bucket list!
We ended our trip in Rouen – another medieval town- the place where Joanof Arc was killed ( it was English at that time).
