One of the inevitable costs of trying to cycle in a number of places is the need to transfer our base every few days. After two nights based in the town Waterloo and a great day cycling through the battlefield, we up-ed sticks and headed for Honfleur.
Our route took us south out of Belgium and then west along Autoroute 29 via Mons and Amiens. Made all the easier by a new little gadget stuck to the windscreen that allows the car to go straight through the tele-charge lane with no queues.
Once a small Norman fishing port accros the Siene from Le Havre, Honfleur is now a bustling rather quaint harbour town full of tourists. What a contrast after the quiet “strip” town of Waterloo. What a joy in terms of the 139 restaurants and 57 bars that now await us.
The port is no longer teaming with fishing boats however, but rather with well healed sailing yachts. Very picturesque, if not exactly authentic.
Tomorrow will be a ride down the coast to Deauville in search of a SIM card for Jay’s hungry iPad. But that’s another story for another day.
