Normandy 2016

Beachweather most of the time and only one bad day. 

We made a walk EVERY DAY to the point where the river Thar flows into the sea, between St. Pair sur Mer and Kairon Plage. It was quiet, nearly unreal, and far from a madding crowd, allthough....
On the 18th of July, just one day before we arrived, a would-be terrorist run upon the beach, crying: i will kill everybody.
So imagine the panic: parents and grandparents with little ones running for their lives. The police came after 20 minutes and caught the guy.
He might have been under drugs, or alcohol, or the two.
This was just four days after the sloughter in Nice....

And so the vacation went on, for three weeks and by the end i took a walk, alone as i'm the only one who likes walking.
First part along the beach, towards Carolles. Then through a lovely little valley and climbing a hill.

through fields along a waterfall

another hill

to my reward:

Vauban's cabin

LE MONT SAINT MICHEL and Tombelaine roch on the left

And all the way back home.

I've sewed quite a bit too, hexies and blocks, more than i expected and all in the garden.

Hope you all had a couple of days off
and mister Not so zen sends you greetings too! He stole my hat btw.....
