Holidaying in Honfleur France


15 Likes

Been there many times on the way out as well as in to France on late/early crossing.
Not so much fun on wet cobblestones on a motorcycle, but it is a nice little town.

Well, for those of us that can’t afford a foreign holiday (:wink:) and have to “resort” to local walks here’s evidence that it’s not always coastal walks…

Wellington Monument (Very visible from the M5 motorway) note the “porthole”…

The platform at the top of 232 steps…

A triangular structure with 3 “portholes” here’s 2…

The passage between the keep & tower…

I spent some time working in Macon a few years ago. Really enjoyed it. Visited the Big House (Allman Brothers museum) amongst other things. :+1:

It’s nearly 30 years since I went into the Wellington monument. I still go walking with the same folk once a year, Lewes was this years venue. A return to the South West is overdue…

The monument had been closed for a 3-4 years due to lightning damage & erosion. The National Trust completed repairs & renovation (including a new lightning conductor) and reopened it a few months ago…

Ah, Kinzua Dam and reservoir. I grew up near there. When they were constructing the dam in the mid-60’s my father loaded us in the car to drive around the area that was to be flooded. He was weird that way. He said it was a last chance to see it.

The week-long 2015 Microsoft Ignite Conference was held in Chicago. I stayed on the 20th (or above) floor of a 40-story building. Except for checking in and out, I didn’t take the elevator (lift) once. I got out of the building 2 to 3 times each day, 400 steps each direction.

Wow! This looks amazing…I need to pay a visit. Thanks for sharing :slight_smile:

If you decide to visit plan a walk in the area at the same time as the trip up tower takes less than 30 minutes…

Was watching the same programme as a bit of a relief from the relentless coverage of a certain event in the UK!
