Our most recent “Love where you live” outing was to Cabourg with my in-laws about a week ago. The day started out with thick, creamy fog hanging low in the atmosphere and although we maintained that the fog would lift, at a certain point in the day, we were pretty worried that it wouldn’t. The chilly wind caught us a bit off-guard as we arrived on the beach, but true to our prediction, the wind quickly dissipated the persistent fog and all that was left was a pristine blue sky. We basked under the sun as we enjoyed this pretty beachside town in Low Normandy.
Just as a bit of trivia: “Cabourg is famous for being Marcel Proust‘s favorite vacation place at the beginning of the 20th century; it is the inspiration for Balbec, the seaside resort in Proust’s In Search of Lost Time” (Cabourg – Wikipedia). You can find Proust inspired madeleines all over town. So fun. It even inspired me to go back and read this French classic from my university days 😉
We made lots of happy memories on our little day outing. I hope you will enjoy the photos!
