June 5, 2015.
Morning spent travelling from Amiens to Rouen via as many backroads as we could find.
It took us a couple of days but we finally figured out how to trick our GPS into taking us along the backroads of France.
Heading down an ‘unnamed street’ on our way to Rouen. Past fields.And small villages.Perhaps it should have been called ‘the road to ruin’. We decided to go past Château de Pissy. I mean, with a name like that, who could resist? Part way along we spotted a church with an unusual steeple. We stopped to take a photo of it and man came running up and asked us if we’d like to see inside.He opened up the door to the old church with an old key.We were allowed to see the vesperal from the 1800s and still in use.
There were many stained-glass windows donated by wealthy patrons.Outside they were doing something (renovating? cleaning?) in a giant crane. By now the day had started to heat up so we headed straight for the Normandy Coast and the Baie de Somme.
