Then it was off to the beach!

 

 

 

Day Two

 

Started off with a continental breakfast.

Followed by shopping in Coursuelles-Sur-Mer market. Lots of bartering and bits bought - as always the leather bracelet man was busy.

After our picnic lunch in Coursuelles, we headed off to beautiful Honfleur to sketch the fabulous vista and then took a walk up to St. Catherine’s a 15th century church, the largest wooden built church in France, Home to relics of St Therese of Lisieux and said a prayer for our loved ones and those that could not travel with us.

Off back to the Centre then to write up our memories of the day, dinner and finally beach time - another day comes to a close.
