My Post-Christmas Post (Part 3)

Updated: Mar 8


After Melinda and I had a coffee in Arromanches, we walked around looking for somewhere for a bite of lunch. Unfortunately, many of the most inviting looking places were closed between Christmas and New Year, and those that weren't were packed. So we set off in the general direction of Bayeux and on the way stopped by this view of a pretty country church...

...but, unfortunately, my camera froze somewhere between being on and off and refused to co-operate...

...and, because the views were rather interesting in both directions, I reluctantly had to rely on my phone and, in my frustration (and concern for my camera) I forgot to take note of the name of the place. Hopefully, though, I'll be able to get directions back there again the next time I'm in the area...

...and so, while I continually fiddled with the switches on my camera, we drove into Bayeux and set out on foot to find food still being served at the ungodly hour of just after 2 o'clock in the afternoon...

...it was a long walk but, eventually, after a Bayeux travesty of a sparingly filled ciabatta washed down with a painfully expensive beer...

...we had a walk around the outside of the cathedral...

...and it did look good against the perfectly blue sky...

...but, then, almost everything does...

...and, at the front, was this enormous metal Christmas bauble, but I couldn't get back far enough with my phone to get it all in the frame...

...so I took this one from inside it.


As soon as we got back to the car, my camera suddenly forgave me for whatever slight it had perceived that I had perpetrated upon it and, magically, went back to working in the way to which I have become accustomed. Unfortunately, the weather did not repeat its cloudless perfection of the day before New Year's Eve for all of the following week but, nevertheless, the whole story of my little holiday with my little dog has yet to be told.


So watch this space.


Love,


Philip Xx
