Ault Picardie 19thSeptember 2015

To Veules les Roses and Fecamp

Why stop here?

Well its that time of day – that’s why.

After driving for maybe an hour – its time to find a campsite.

No need to drive far to see something different here.

Well we had no idea what was in store.

You have heard of the White Cliffs of Dover. Fantastic to see white chalky cliffs on the sea and hey stretch for about15 kilometers. WOW

Well the Cote d’Albatre ( Alabaster Coast ) stretches about 130 klms. Similar limestone cliffs with bits falling into the sea, air brushing the water colour to lighter shades of blue grey and green.

Along this coast we were treated to an unexpected smorgasbord of eye candy sea scapes. Over 3 days we wandered along the Cote d’Albatre camping in villages built on headlands above the sea or beside coastal streams. For us, the tastiest sights were the villages of Fecamp and Veules les Roses, where over many centuries rivers have eroded the limestone cliffs and fishing ports have been established. Its sad to have to report that we did not linger longer in more of the pretty villages along this coast.
