I wanted to share a few pictures of the countryside of Normandy, France. Normandy is a peninsula populated by farms (mostly dairy). The old farmhouses, stone fences, rolling landscape, and beaches make a spectacular backdrop for our stay.
Our farmhouse. 🙂 Our portion of the house is all the way to the right of the picture. It had a bedroom, shower, and kitchen downstairs and a bedroom and toilet upstairs.
Blackberries blooming in October. They taste different than our blackberries in the South — very sweet, not at all tart.
The holes were made by bombing raids in WWII.
Anna charms animals wherever she goes.
And more cows. Normandy is famous for their dairy. We stayed next door to a dairy, watched the afternoon milking, and took home fresh-from-the-cow milk to drink.
Stone fences and farmhouses.
The ivy on the house in the distance is changing over to red. These old farmhouses are beautiful.
Pointe Du Hoc. Army Rangers scaled this wall under heavy artillery fire.
Mont St. Michel in the distance.
These final pictures are of us exploring tide pools at Cap de la Hague for Andrew’s 40th Birthday!
