Travel Photo Thursday: Honfleur

Honfleur Harbor
Honfleur Harbor, Normandy, France

Unfortunately, we only had one night in Honfleur, the lovely little Norman seaside town that attracts summer vacationers by the droves. It was no longer summer when we arrived, and the chilly wind sent us scurrying off the street and bending over a huge black pot of moules for dinner at a seaside restaurant. The next morning, the wind calmed and the sun blazed as we took an hour quickly exploring the fascinating, ancient downtown clustered around this picturesque harbor. It is easy to see how the Impressionists came up with the idea of painting with dots of light when you watch the sun sparkle on the water. And the Impressionists flocked here during their heydey. Just one more reason to visit Honfleur.

I missed posting a photo last week, because we were launching the introductions and first offerings of our new team of experts. If you missed it,  take your pick of an expert on music travel, cultural travel, movie travel, pet travel or family travel.

And, alas, no one came up with the definitive answer on the what- is-this photo of two weeks ago, although there were some pretty good guesses. ┬áPlease pass this on to anyone who might know. I’m SO curious.
