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.

Le Tréport and view from the stairs
What a color of the sea!
Decoration of a facade. And this house is to let
Almost all buildings in an old part of the town are built of this material, silex
I’m in love with this view
The stairs are done, now we walk in to the old town
Spring is around the corner
Nice and cozy Mexican bar. For sale, if someone is interested
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

Marée basse. Boats wait for a right moment to come back to the marina
There is no chance to lost

Little square. Sunday morning
Postal card to everyone
It is time to go out of the brick and stone quarters and smell the salted air of La Manche.
Small photo session
Last view on the pharos
It is time to come back home to warm tea and delicious sea food lunch. On the way back we passed by a traditional carousel (there is no French village without French carousel in the entire universe!)
Cute little toy
Up and Down
The very last view on a sea shore and Le Treport …

Ducks as usual, are hungry and demanding
the church of the village
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
