Postcard from...Honfleur, France

Honfleur, a town of painters and impressionism, was the perfect stop for an afternoon stroll after a morning of driving from London to France. It's well known for its picturesque cobblestone streets, timber-framed house fronts, charming little shops, and restaurants surrrounding the Vieux-Bassin {old dock}. It has preserved remnants from its rich historical past with relics of an old fortification, the Lieutenance {Lieutenancy} and the Porte de Caen {Caen Gate}, along with the Greniers à sel {salt granaries} found in narrow backstreets.

This photo comes from my second visit to this charming little town but with other things to explore and discover here I have a feeling this won't be my last visit.
