Pont-Audemer

Petite Venise de Normandie

I’m often accused by my travelling companions of planning to do too much in too little time. So to avoid further rebuke I decided to stop here using the pretext that, “It’s on the way home”. We had the added bonus of driving home on a national route, which was free, instead of the A13 motorway, which would have cost a bunch more. Driving in the Normandy countryside is also pleasant, until it became too dark to see. I was drawn to the town after seeing a photo of houses lining a canal where the water practically lapped at their doorstep!

This scene reminds me a little of Colmar’s Petite Venise.
