A little French sunshine

trouville beach 1

Last week we were in Normandy, France for a few days of glorious R&R.

Trouville sur Mer beach. Deserted mostly. A stroll along the sand, a gentle breeze, sunshine on the face, watching seagulls chase the waves, truly restorative.

Followed by a fab lunch, traditional style, Soupe a l’onion, Veau a la Normande, and then a long knitting session at home in front of a roaring fire – the best day!

The knitting project photo is deliberately a ‘jumble’ because the finished item may be a gift.  I don’t want the recipient to see exactly what it might look like!

 

 

 

 

 

trouville beach 2What a shame we won’t be there for the upcoming book/writers festival in early November.  It sounds interesting and you can’t beat the advertising boards which capture the ambiance of this lovely seaside resort. This link is in French but you can google translate it if you need to. http://trouville.c3rb.org/presentation-sla2017

If you love books and France try and take a trip and tell us all about it!  Even in the autumn you might sit outside at a pavement cafe, watch a game of boules …. ooh reminiscing ….

Signing out for now.
