Cabourg, Normandy, France, September 4, 2018
It was back to tennis today for Erika and me. We had a long practice session (focusing on serves). I then introduced Erika to Lidl (Susan and Robin, they have the same bread here as in Germany…and the same slicer). We found carrot salad (my favorite) some Tomme cheese (all varieties are delicious, especially Tomme de Savoi) and of course a bit of chocolate.
After lunch we walked into the town, which has a pretty Main Street lined with restaurants, bakeries and candy shops mostly. The Main Street led us to the Grand Hotel, a five star Sofitel property. We walked through it to the beach and the promenade which goes on for a long ways. The promenade is lined with houses, which seem to be a mix of half timbered houses and Brittany style houses.
Tomorrow we are going to explore the area around Cabourg (after tennis practice of course), and out teammates for the US/France International Club match should be trickling in.
