After Monet

How perfect was that?

When I visited with my family in 2008, you could still see some of the bomb damage from WWII on both the Cathedral and the Palace of Justice nearby. But aside from the cathedral and the bizarre-looking church now on the site of Joan of Arc’s martyrdom, we found Rouen something of a disappointment. Of course that’s due in part to the fact that I’d injured my ankle the day before and we wound up buying a cane in Rouen. (And the injury kept me from getting to see Chateau Gaillard, so I’m especially jealous that you got to visit it.)

Are you heading to Bayeux? If so, you may enjoy Restaurant Le Pommier à Bayeux. Bayeux also makes a great base for visiting the D-Day battlefields.

I’ll probably be in Bayeux tomorrow night, so I’ll be sure to check our Le Pommier. Nothing like a first-hand recommendation.

Pardon me, I need to take a duchamp.
