Photo du Jour - Along the Quai

Moving Scallops

Crates of Coquilles St. Jacques along the quai in Port-en-Bessin. Straight from the sea, heading to tables all over France. 

(a bit blurry as it was raining...it is Normandy after all!)

Remind me -- is Port-en-Bassin the town you live in now? I don't know the area very well...

Very nice photo. But NO VINES!!!! Hope your journey went well and that you're having fun settling in. Miss you!

Merci! I was standing out there, watching a half a dozen vans and trucks load up with all those scallops. It was impressive!
And I'm sure they were all thinking, "what is that crazy woman doing standing in the rain, taking photos of us?"

Betty
Yes, it's where we've landed for the time being. Not too far from Honfleur and Bayeux is just 10 minutes away.

Juliet
But just think of all those juicy, delicious scallops! (yes, I know there are no vines...when are you coming to visit???) :)
Missing you very much. It all seems a bit surreal at the moment and I miss having friends around.
Have a happy Christmas! xo

All of those lovely scallops! Seafood is definitely a holiday food in France, certainly more so than here in USA. Enjoy your new home and have fun exploring Normandy in the months to come. Merry Christmas.

Yes, it was taken in the same town, a very lively little port town. We're loving our time here.

The same to you and your family. Hope you're enjoying your celebrations.

We're settling in just fine, thanks. :) And the weather has been gorgeous since the day I snapped that photo.
Happy holidays!
