Normandy – France

Here are the captures from my recent travel to Normandy, a region of the Northern France.

1. Claude Monet Giverny garden.

This has a flower garden and also a water garden. It has an ultimate collection of flowers.

2. Etretat

It is a place with beautiful beaches, natural arcs, and cliffs. Sunset looks great from here. When the tides are low you can cross the cliff (the one in below picture) through a cave and can explore the part of the cliff (L’Aiguille). And it is not a sand beach but filled with pebbles in order to save the cliffs from erosion.

This is what you see if you cross through the cave (L’Aiguille)

3. Arromanches-Les-Bains

It was once an artificial port and the place where Normandy landings on D-day took place during World war 2 (6th June 1944).  Even now, one can find the remains of the harbor in the beach.

4. Mont Saint-Michel

It’s a rocky island few meters away from the land and easily accessible by the foot bridge. Low tide allowed us to explore around the island and enjoy the breathtaking sunset.

Lake of Reflections!!!

Every day I come to see you.

You look gorgeous. You look different every day.

You capture the beauty of nature and reflect it through your transparent skin.

You are always cool, both literally and by character.

 

I always like to walk around you.

You make me feel relieved when I am stressed.

You aren’t the same daily.

You are calm some days, and you will be rushing some days.

 

You have seen me thinking about so many things.

I express many things looking at you.

You wear different dresses every day which shows your richness.

Your beauty is filled in my eyes.

 

You have seen laughter and tears.

You are the reason for someone’s happiness.

You have witnessed the happiest and the saddest moments.

The mood in which I come to see you will not be the same when I leave.

 

You don’t need me, but still, I need you.

You will always remain special to me.

You can’t remember me but I can’t forget you.

You have cheered me up at my hard times.

 

You never spoke a word to me.

But still, there was a silent communication between us.

You always will stay special to me

You can’t come in search of me, but I can!

 


Here are few clicks of the tranquil and gorgeous lake which is near my residence here in Poitiers, a city of France.
