Some holiday snaps – Normandy and Brittany

Monet’s waterlilies in the rain, Giverny
I started this post during the second week of a tour round Normandy and Brittany, hence the lack of regular blogging. But I never got round to finishing it – evenings have been taken up with, in this order, local food, local drink, and local lack of wifi (“weefee” in French, which just sounds so much better than wifi). Here is a random selection of my photos from the holiday so far.
Stained glass shadows on the stone floor of Bayeux Cathedral
Not quite a Sheela na Gig, but still rather extraordinary – a Bayeux Cathedral grotesque.
Crawling through a tunnel in a bunker on Juno Beach.
An odd and somewhat creepy discovery in the Forest of Broceliande (Paimpol)
A selection of whiskies at the Warengham Distillery, Brittany
Pear cider and our holiday mascot Cherbourg the octopus, in the grounds of the Abbaye of Mont Saint Michel
A gorgeous view from up in the cloisters of the Abbaye of Mont Saint Michel
There will be many more photos and a lot of writing to come from this holiday. It was practically perfect in every way.
