This whole area east of Caen is known for its apple growing and cider producing. They have a whole 20km circuit where you can visit a stack of distilleries and get completely ripped - I suggest you take the tourist bus.
Later in the afternoon I dropped Margaret back at the accommodation and I headed off again to visit one of distilleries in Cambremer. Unfortunately I missed the English tour but I managed to get most of the gist of the guide on the French tour. He must have been funny as he had the crowd laughing and the children giggling. After about an hour we all retired to the "tasting" area where I duly sipped on some cider but drew the line at the Calvados - I was driving doncha know.
I bought a bottle to bring home with me (see pictures).
I cruised slowly back through yet more divine little villages to end my day on the beach with chicken, croissants and chocolates. It is, after all, My Best Buddy's birthday!
