Love where you live – La Bouille

Here I am again for another set of photos in the “Love where you live” series. This quaint little hidden pocket of a village, neatly nestled against a range of lush hills and rocky cliffs is just a five minute ride from home. And if you thought the Seine River only ran through Paris, it also snakes its way through High Normandy before emptying out into the English Channel! La Bouille simply follows its contours on this miniscule part of its journey.  Its efficient red ferry glides back and forth carrying pedestrians and vehicles across the Seine. The Ferry (le Bac) is free and runs all day long about every fifteen minutes.

It’s the view once you cross the river that is absolutely gorgeous. And to make it all the better to enjoy, there is a paved walkway where you can jog, walk, ride your bike, or glide on your roller blades. It’s a lovely walk for a Sunday evening en famille. Or anytime the sun is shining for that matter!

Post script. They say it always rains in Normandy. Look at how green it is, of course it does. The weather is also very fickle and can change her humour several times within a single day. But rare are the days when the sun doesn’t achieve to burn through the clouds and grace us with her glorious rays that illuminate blue skies and cast a lovely light on our luscious Normandy…. And those are moments to seize.

      Hello again Phoebe! I couldn’t decide which photo I liked best of my son with his doudou and so I used them both! I’m glad you liked them.
      Thanks for the visit to Trilingual Mama and for the link-up of course!

  2. La Bouille looks lovely but being in Haute Normandie it’s a bit far away for a day trip for me. That siad younger son is near there at Evreux today in the Normandy U12 rugby finals :) #AllAboutFrance

  3. This is another stunning post Maria! Your photos are truly beautiful! Thanks for sharing this post with #myexpatfamily

  4. What gorgeous photos. It’s been years since I visited Normandy but I do remember how stunning the landscape is. Your photos really do it justice.
