However, there was also a different type of tour available today as well. This was the tour that Carol and I, along with about 20 of the other passengers decided to take. This tour was called the Taste of Normandy. Today we would be dedicating our day to the culture, history and traditions of the Normandy region!
Our first stop was a visit to Bayeux.
Here we visited the museum in town and saw the famous Tapestry of Queen Mathilda.
There were no photos allowed of the Tapestry, but this was just simply amazing! The entire tapestry is 230 feet long and it shows the story of the Norman invasion and conquer of England culminating in the Battle of Hastings. A sample of the Tapestry looks like this picture
Before long, it was time to meet back up with our group to head to our next stop on our Taste of Normandy tour!
We drove through the countryside, and it looked very much like home a this point!
Except for these lovely Thatched-roof cottages!
Our next stop would be lunch.....we definitely were looking forward to some Normandy traditions!
