St Vaast La Hogue (Normandy), France – August 2020

This second day saw us move west through wonderful Honfleur and then up the Cherbourg Peninsula through Carentan and St Mere Eglise to the pretty harbour town of Saint Vaast La Hogue. Saint Vaast La Hogue is at the northernmost tip of the Cherbourg Peninsula and in totally the opposite direction to our intended route but it seems our arrival there was entirely my fault – As Vanya pointed out after our arrival, I had requested she find us a camp site to the north of Caen and she took that to mean anywhere north of Caen. That we ended up 70 miles further north looking across the Channel to Portsmouth was my bad. I should have been more precise.

Saint Vaast La Hogue at low tide
Very low tide but that Martinello(?) is perhaps worth exploring tomorrow

Still, we have now been to Saint Vaast La Hogue and sat outside a cafe with a beer or two watching the world go by. And most enjoyable it was too.
