Remember the other day when I said we were going to Paris for the day?? Remember how I said I am so very unhappy in crowds??? No one who knows me will be surprised by this story: we set off early for Paris and had travelled for about a half hour when we decided that the train, the changes on the metro, the queuing up to buy tickets, the museum itself, and then the re-run of the morning rush to get back home, oh, it was all too much..... So we turned around went to the coast instead. I have been to Paris a few times already, and have done the tourist thing, and my guy has been there tons, so we went to Etretat, where Monet had spent quite a bit of time and where he had painted quite a few pictures of les falaises, or the cliffs.
Yesterday we drove to our last gite. I cannot believe that our trip is nearly over. Still, over a week to go. We are just outside of Lille in a little place called Erquinghem-Lys. We are going to spend a bit of time in Belgium while we are here; for example, Bruges is only a one hour drive away.
Pictures to follow!!!
