I really enjoyed my first of, I hope, many Normandy vacations.

We first visited family in The Netherlands and then made our way to Paris. We had a great time visiting Notre Dame Paris among other places.

Armed with a road map of Normandy France we drove from Paris to Normandy. A 5 1/2 hour drive, but I didn't mind, there was so much to see out the window.

The Normandy farms and stone buildings were so beautiful. We saw the Normandy beaches and took one of the self-guided Normandy d day tours. We visited the Bayeux Tapestry. The history of Normandy is really old!

My favorite Normandy town was Alencon. This is where Saint Theresa (my patron saint) was born.

Lots of hotels in Normandy France to choose from and we had a great place. Didn’t even have a reservation and we were very comfortable.

We went in October and the Normandy weather was great about 52 F/11C and hardly any rain and hardly any tourists.

It was a wonderful, very peaceful and beautiful vacation.
