Next up on the road was a trip to Normandy with plans to visit the D-Day sites and memorials. Along the way we saw some beautiful country side eventually reaching the North France Coast of Normandy. Lunch stop was in the picturesque port city of Honfleur. This is a fishing village across the bay from Le Havre, the largest shipping port in Europe.
To accommodate the extremes of high and low tide the small ship harbor must trap water during receding and low tide to keep the boats afloat. This building monitors and controls he locks at the appropriate times.
