Where I stayed
I should have mentioned that we walked around the ramparts at St Malo when we started the day. Cool but sun on the back was nice, and still just a T Shirt.
After we left Mont St Michel, we headed to another of the most beautiful villages....this time Barfleur
Fortunately the Tour Director had also asked about free wifi in town, so we headed off to the cafe with wifi (no mobile coverage) to login to hotel booking sites.
About now we noticed a bit of noise on the wharf, it seems a local had trouble parking and needed external help. I have seen some crazy parking since arriving in France but this topped it all. I didn't go too close but don't understand how he stayed dry????
Back to our bed for a night, the magic of the Internet found a place 80km away but towards Bayeux (our venue for tomorrow). Off we headed and our gps on this occasion got us close but no hotel??? Once around the block and still no hotel? We stopped and Sandy asked locals, who pointed us in the right direction (they thought) but said if it is not there come back for dinner and abed at their place. Fortunately(?) they were right and the hotel is lovely.
One more twist... We knew the hotel did not serve dinner and they pointed to a local
favourite at Omaha beach. We visited here with Allen and Deanna a few years back. Dinner was sensational
as you may guess with the number of photos uploaded...we have good internet again tonight
Tomorrow the Bayeux Tapestry
