Paques à Normandie

This year it was my second Catholic Easter in my life and the first one with a little dragon. Well, collecting chocolate eggs and searching for chocolate rabbits it is fun, indeed!

After all eggs were collected and successfully eaten it was time for a small promenade. Otherwise we risked to find not a nice chocolate belly the very next day. This Sunday morning we decided to go to the nearest town on a sea shore with a beautiful promenade, an old casino, a pharos and magnificent view points. The name of the town is Le Treport and this is one out of three town-brothers: together with Eu and Mers les Bains it creates one single town where borders between towns are indicated only on road signs.

Marina area

11.

the most crowded part of the town – the promenade with restaurants, bars, boutiques and souvenir shops.

Some restaurants are really worth to visit. For instance, L’omare bleu. I strongly recommend to visit it and you will get the freshest seafood, the coldest champagne and the warmest bread with the local specialty, the salted butter

Promotion of a business and celebration of the Easter

A local farmer who had a big enterprise not far from this place installed live decorations in tribute to Easter: in several land marks in the village the small pavilions with ducks, chickens and roosters had been installed to entertain kids and their parents.

and, to finalize the report on my trip to Normandie, a bit of alcohol and girls

Alcohol is at the bar (including my bottle of Sumbuca), girls are coming
