This year spring on the European mainland is not a cosy one. The true exception is only the South. Longing for the sun I found photos made last summer in Normandy. The heat was all around us, but we found ourselves in a right place at the right time traveling and enjoying summer.
We left Rouen, the cradle of the Norman culture (>>>) and took the way West to reach the Atlantic coast (the English Channel to be precise). The day was more about sightseeing than sunbathing. But we started it at one of the most picturesque beaches in the region – the Etretat beach famous for its chalk cliffs.
