TravelPod Member ReviewsAuberge de la Source Barneville-la-Bertran
The inn is set in scenic rural setting surrounded by forest and farm, although it is only several kilometres from Hornfleur. The rooks are spacious and well appointed and have a charming exterior of timber and mud and brick. The gardens are fantastic as is the pond which was the home to a juvenile sturgeon.
The meals were very nicely prepared and wine list excellent.

There were white caps and rough seas so good luck to the athletes. We went strolling through a market and admired all the very fresh vegetables ...

Tomorrow we stop at Mont St. Michel and then on to our next hotel in St. Malo on the ...
... but on this day, it was clear. As we approach the Cemetery, poppies were flowered along the ditch of the road. When we arrived, we had a lot of time to search for the graves where the soldiers we have been researching were buried.
It was an amazing Cemetery (How it looked). Compared to the cemetery at Omaha Beach, the Canadian one was not perfect. In front of the headstones, little Canadian flags were ...
... make my plane fail to take off? Well as I fell asleep lash night, it occurred to me that lo and behold.... it didn't! Tres Bizarre! Talk about irony. ....
Also bizarre is my trip to the grocery store. But more to come on that later. I am tired of typing. I hope you all find this a bit entertaining to read and not too much of a drag. But since I can't Skype every single one of you, it will have to do.
Ttyl-the traveling tricoteuse ...
