Postcard from France: Normandy

June 23, 2013


We arrived in the small town of Douvres-la-Delivrande yesterday afternoon in Lower Normandy.  It is cool, lush, enchanting, and for the history buffs (as well as the non-history buffs like me) in our family , we feel as though we are walking on hallowed ground.


La Haule, the house we are renting for the week


The view out the kitchen door.


Our kitchen table.

And these pictures, they are for you, Frankie. I know you’ll appreciate the joinery of the kitchen table.

Thus far, we are both excited and humbled.  We are not frequent or savvy travellers so this journey is avec reconnaissance. 

Au revoir,

      It definitely fell into the once-in-a-lifetime category. Oh my goodness, you guys would have LOVED the cows (and cheese and apples:) Sounds a bit like Boone, eh? I still may wind up on your doorstep!
