Sunday 19th May. Houlgate to Saint-Jouin-Bruneval. 49 miles.

It rained in the night and it was still raining when I woke up! After looking at the weather forecast, I decided to sit it out, as it was due to stop around 8 o’clock. No problem I thought I’ll wait the 2 or so hours! Its a much better option than packing away in the rain, there’s nothing worse!

Anyway after about an hour or so it stopped, so I quickly decamped and started to load up the bike. That’s when it decided to start raining again, but at least I packed everything away first.

Now that I was packed up I didn’t have any choice but to head off in the rain! So much for that weather forecast, it was still raining at 10 o’clock!

Although it stopped raining it’s been a very dull overcast day and I ended the day in the rain as well!

No more D-Day stuff that’s all behind me now, but I still came through some nice places, Deauville and Trouville, not that there was a lot to see, it was too wet!

Honfleur is another pretty town that I came through, but that was packed with tourists!

  1. Some lovely place names. You came through Le Havre – you must have gone over a bridge. Was it the bridge of Tarcanville? Hope the weather improves.
