Giverney … A Special Day Out. ….. Part one; … Livarot.

Giverney … A Special Day Out.

Part one; … Livarot.

We both like cheese, and France has as big a choice of delicious cheeses as has the U.K. so it was with some delight that we passed through Livarot, on a rambling route to Giverney that avoided some of the same-old-same-old Autoroutes. It looked an interesting town, and one to visit in the future. We were immediately welcomed with familiarly lovely roadside flower arrangements and equally familiar looking French cheese signs!

I snapped what I could through windows, from the comfortingly cool interior of the car.

As we drove out of Livarot past the church dominating the end of the road, at just after midday, we definitely decided a re-visit at another date.

We continued on our way, as always noting the variety of old, Normandy buildings en route.

You see some odd things when travelling about. This idiot was driving with his door open!

The old Wattle&Daub Houses were so pretty, someone left just the wall standing when the rest went!

It isn’t all old either; but I know what I prefer!

Having crossed another pretty bridge, this one over the River Eure, we found the first road sign to our destination; a comforting confirmation after two hours of driving.
