Honfleur is a quaint seaside French village we visited in the Normandy region. The oldest known wooden church, St. Catherine, is here. It was built in the 1300's and the roof looks like a Viking ship turned upside down. So many cathedrals burn and it is amazing that this one has lasted so long.

The musical composer Eric Satee is also from this village. Mandy was excited about walking past his birthplace, as she had played a couple of his pieces in the past.

Some of the best hot chocolate Savannah and I had was from Honfleur. They are also known for their apple cider and calvados that the WWII serviceman would drink to help keep warm. A lovely cobblestoned French village!
