A sudden rise in temperature had us heading straight to the Normandy Coast; a missed road sign and we ended up on the beach at Cap Hornu.
The Normandy Coast of France has miles of scenic wonder great for bicycling. One part of the beach was filled with flint stones.
Most of the beach area was sand which had the school teachers busy keeping track of all the children. From the beach a set of stairs led up into the medieval village of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme but there was a little beach restaurant that beckoned, La Buvette Restaurant.But as soon as we arrived at the restaurant, the wind picked up dramatically and blew one umbrella up in the air, resulting in a mad scurrying of waiters trying to pull down all the umbrellas before anyone got hurt.
The province of Normandy in France is famous for their apple cider and the previous evening I had discovered that the ‘Brut’ cider was very much to my taste. This Loïc Raison didn’t disappoint.

Charming spot, Albatz!
Going off on a tangent and missing a critical turn had big advantages – both the beach and the medieval town above felt like magnificent discoveries!
