Honfleur, this is the town where I can picture Johnny Depp strutting his pirate swagger as he is slashing his way to his ship. LOL. On the mouth of the Seine with the waves from the English Channel lapping along its sea wall it was first written about by Richard the III, Duke of Normandy in 1027. It soon became a major port for shipping goods back and forward between Normandy and England. It is situated in the Calvados region of Normandy, home to the wonderful Calvados (Apple) Brandy). Needless to say there are now a couple of bottles in our suitcases.
Jim admiring the art work.

Saint Catherine's is an original wood timbered church dating back to the 15th century. The original stone church was destroyed in the 100 years war.
