DEAUVILLE, HONFLUER, GRANVILLE, FRANCE.

3 places in Normandy France.

Leaving London by Eurostar for Paris,then SNCF from Paris via Lisieux to Trouville/Deauville station. I stayed at the Ibis hotel Deauville, overlooking the boats in the harbour. Deauville is Normandys "posh" seaside resort., known for horse racing ,horse
breeding and training. Lovely beaches, the beach huts have famous film star names. I walked over the bridge over the river to Trouville ,a fishing town opposite Deaville. Next day i took the regular bus to Honfluer, taking about 30 minutes.
Honfluer is on the southern banks of the river Seine. Took a short walk on the Promenade.The Harbour is really
pretty. --The artist Monet used to visit Honfluer. ---Two nice resorts.EURO  TUNNEL     FRENCH  SIDE. --Usually the Eurostar train speeds into the tunnel, on this occasion it stopped ,and i took this picture.
