E is for .. Les Jardin d’Etretat

While based in Bayeux, we decided to take a day trip along the coast in our rental car. One of the stops we made was in Etretat to check out the beautifully manicured Jardin d’Etretat and its quirky face installations that I’d seen online.

An added bonus was the view of the famous ‘Needle’ rock cliff, made famous (to me, anyway) by Claude Monet.

Speaking of Mr. Monet, I learned that a woman who once owned the house of the garden was good friends with him and he used to visit her regularly.

I very much enjoyed this recreation of the famous painter doing what he did best.

Say fromage!

Bonne journée!

      1. I think it could be a pretty sweet gig, but there are so many reasons why it would fail. “You guys go ahead, I’ll meet you there. I have to take more photos of this door/church/my feet and also eat another 17 pastries.”
