Reflections, Le Havre

Our whistle-stop break in Le Havre, north-west France was, as you can see, blessed with fine weather. My father-in-law was determined that we should get the most from our short visit and, with his help, we were able to see plenty of his local neighbourhood, the city and seafront. I'm so glad we made this visit. Such calm weather is rare in Le Havre and locals and visitors alike delighted in the stillness and warmth of the late autumn sunshine. Families, couples, old and young, taking time to be in the moment and spend time with each other - it was wonderful to observe - a gift. I love France: its food, architecture and style. Autumn seemed to be less advanced here and as we held onto British Summer Time, we took pleasure in the light and sights. Here's my view, my postcard....

  1. Oh that all looks so lovely. The patisserie looks delicious. I really like the perfume labels, where were they? I think you should work for the Le Havre tourist board you've presented such a stunning view of it.
