|Looking back at the entrance to Cherbourg Harbour.|
One of the great things about living in England is the easy access to Europe. We are on a two week holiday in the Loire Valley, France. Getting here from Surrey, England was relatively easy. We packed our car, drove one hour to Portsmouth, hopped on the ferry for a three hour ride to port in Cherbourg, France and we were there. We travelled via Brittany Ferries.
To set the mood, I listened to a few songs by Charles Trenet.
We made our way to Chateau d' Audrieu in Lower Normandy, arriving in the evening.

I make a habit of photographing the view from our window in every hotel we stay in around the world. Some have been memorable and some not. The image below was a welcome sight on Saturday morning. After breakfast we made our way around the garden and extensive grounds of the chateau. It was a brief visit but well worth the stay.

Saying goodbye to Chateau Audrieu we packed up the car once again
and set our sights on the next stop on our list....
