The Bay of Somme

We benefited from the weekend of All Saints' day for will discover bay of Somme. We had good weather and we had fun. (See also Saint-Riquier and Abbeville pages)

The history

This small port had its importance in the England but French history also. Did you know that Jeanne d' Arc had passed there and that it is from here William the Conqueror left to invade England?

In the church

The photograph was taken with the back of the church. This tapestry recalls with the manner of a comic strip, the story of William the Conqueror and its victory over King Harold

    Fine comments on La Baie de Somme - less crowded than la Baie du Mont St Michel and closer to our homes!
