6 corners of the Hexagon: Bayeux

After our week in Chinon, we headed back north to continue our trip west along the coast. When I’d visited France for the first time in high school, our bus broke down on the way to Bayeux, and since then I’d always wondered about the Bayeux tapestry. Let me tell you – it was worth the wait. No photos are allowed in the museum, but they wouldn’t do it justice anyway; you have to see it for yourself.

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover how beautiful Bayeux’s cathedral is, and were able to enjoy it in both morning and afternoon light.

    I too loved seeing the tapestry. I also went to Normandy beach and the English one. The people there are equal in friendliness and genuine to the southwestern part. Of course I have loved every part of France that I have visited. I only wish I were younger and could be 40 yrs old again so I could live longer to tell everybody how warm and fuzzy the French people are to me. Now I’ve met two that weren’t and guess what they were Americans playing the role of being French.
