What is it about the name "Darcy" that I like so well?
Thursday, Day 17
Well, on Friday, we had to say goodbye to Jackie's new car. So, we decided to use this day to prepare her car for the delivery at the drop location in Paris before we did anymore sightseeing. We discovered that in the nearby village of Trouville-sur-Mer, there was a self-service car wash. So, after breakfast we drove over and after a few tries, we found the wash and cleaned the car ourselves. Our finished product was more like a "detail job" than a routine car wash. It looked great.
After cleaning the car, we drove over to the nearby town of Honfleur. It is located on the south side of the Seine River, across from Le Havre. There is a lot of interesting history here with plenty to see.
And, thanks to Rick Steve’s Guidebook, we found a nice laundromat to wash our clothes for the last time. Later, we enjoyed the art galleries and took a scenic boat tour of the harbor. If we are ever back in this area we would definitely return to spend more time here.
Since we were in our third week, we were a little tired of sightseeing.
Time, once again, to do laundry.
So, we spent the remainder of the day back at the hotel and surrounding area. We had a full moon and perfect weather; perfect for just walking around the village and down by the sea.
For Friday, we were to have a busy day. On the drive down to Paris, we planned to stop at Giverny, where Claude Monet spent 43 of his most creative years. Then we planned to drive to our hotel in Paris, drop our luggage, drive to the Chas DeGaulle Airport and return to our hotel on the subway. So, we got to bed early to catch up on needed sleep.
