We left Paris and sailed north on the Seine, leaving behind the Eiffel Tower and the model of the Statue of Liberty near which we were docked
.A favorite stop on the Seine Cruise was our return to Giverny, Monet's Garden near the picturesque town of Vernon, Normandy. The last time we were at Giverny, it was early summer; the late summer garden was equally beautiful.
From tip of this series: Monet's House and Garden, the House, the Waterlily Pond and Japanese Bridge; still many roses in bloom; also lots of dahlias and late summer flowers; Below, views in Vernon.
Two of my lifelong ambitions were fulfilled on the day we visited the Bayeux Tapestry and the D-Day Landing Beaches.
We spent time in the lovely city of Rouen, where there is a spectacular light show on the face of the famous cathedral in the evening.
Au revoir, France. On to England.
