Normandy Week: Honfleur+Etretat

I love the town of Honfleur. Sure, it's super quaint, which attracts plenty of tourists, mostly the older Brit and American type. But the people who live there are warm, and it's so beautiful, easy to walk around, and has lots of good restaurants. It's also a great home base for most of Normandy, unless you want to go really far west or south. We took a morning trip to Etretat, which was so crazy beautiful--I couldn't believe I hadn't seen it in travel magazines. Honfleur has a great organic market, which is held next to the St. Catherine's cathedral, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
