Well, what can I say. Today was a very long exhausting day. Left Boston at 7:10 pm, arriving at Charles de Gaulle airport at 7:20am, local time. The flight itself was very uneventful, arriving early, so we thought "Great". Not so fast, as we waited in line for 1 1/2 hours to get through immigration, then on to the car rental agency, which took another hour. So we didn't get on the road until 10:00am. Thankfully, our car is equipped with GPS, so we easily maneuvered through busy traffic, and arrived at our first stop, Giverny, to visit Monet's home and gardens. It was not disappointing, as the flowers were spectacular, and his home interesting, and filled with reproductions of his works. After a very delicious lunch of filled crepes, we headed off to Bayeux, where we plan on spending the next two days visiting the Beaches of the D-Day invasion. As we traveled along, the fatigue began to sink in, causing us to begin dozing off. I awakened just in time to see Ray drifting into the adjacent lane, so we decided it was time to stop and rest. So there we were, all four of us, seats reclined, fast
asleep in a road side rest area. We finally arrived at La Tour Louise, the B& B we had reserved in Bayeux at around 5:00 pm. After resting a bit, we walked through town, checking out all of the rest, and settling on Chez Matilda. After a lovely glass of wine, and a delicious meal, we were off to our room. We are all hoping for a restful sleep, as a long day of site-seeing awaits us tomorrow. Bonsoir.
