Goodbye to Paris (for now, for this group) and off to Le Havre (the Port). It's a couple of metro stops (always fun with luggage and all the stairs up and down) and a 2 hour train ride. It is a nice, comfortable ride in second class - where I can Phil's photos and I can get caught up on my blog entries :) - Note: I have back-filled some previous entries with additional pictures...


It is a rainy day, and somewhat cooler, but we head out in search of something for lunch. Our phones are not very useful as there are places that are "open", but they are not serving food (only until about 1:30pm for lunch and then break for dinner). The O'planB place is nice and we enjoy some "creative" tarot card reading (by members of the group). The owner is very nice, even if he didn't have any food...


We finally find a kebop place that is open and "enjoy" some local music videos (Phil is inspired that he will be making music videos in his retirement and was gathering some great ideas). Since it is raining, only Phil and I are interested in exploring more of the city - Kate, Gwen and Rishaun head back to the hotel. We find the beach (rocky), the fan fest (closed) and a tower church...


It stopped raining and we visited the tourist office - found out about the tram/buses and then wondered into the downtown area. We just happened to find a very nice pub - a sports bar with lots of TVs - wacky drinks and piles of dishes.


Meanwhile, Sally arrives, needs some supplies/groceries and then Ivan and Diana. We head out for some food, finding a nice Turkish restaurant and call it a night.
