Jardin d’Etretat

While based in Bayeux, we decided to take a day trip along the coast in our rental car. One of the stops we made was in Etretat to check out the beautifully manicured Jardin d’Etretat and its quirky face installations that I’d seen online.

An added bonus was the view of the famous ‘Needle’ rock cliff, made famous (to me, anyway) by Claude Monet.

Speaking of Mr. Monet, I learned that a woman who once owned the house of the garden was good friends with him and he used to visit her regularly.

I very much enjoyed this recreation of the famous painter doing what he did best.
