Deauville, France

On our way to Belgium we stopped in Deauville for some beach time. I had seen pictures of the Deauville umbrellas on Meg’s blog so I was pleasantly surprised that we had parked right in front of them. I couldn’t believe how great the umbrellas were, all brightly colored and lined up right in a row. It was pretty perfect. Deauville is a charming and relaxed bordwalk-y town. The kind of place where you get the feeling every person there is on vacation. It is very near the D-Day Normandy beaches so worth a stop if you are touring those anyway.

    Sunshine in the front, cool breeze in the back.

    Oh how I wish I was there right now. It looks amazing! BTW I dont really comment often but I can't tell how cool it is that you packed up and moved to Paris for you a year. I have been to Paris twice and reading you posts makes me want to go back even more each day.

    Thank you for sharing :)

    Next time you're in the area, lunch at Honfleur is also very classic, picture perfect and very much worth a stop.

  • Anne says:

    What beautiful umbrellas! They make me long for summer days on the beach in France! Until then, I might just have to go out and get a smaller, yet brightly colored umbrella for beach season here in California. :)
