Beautiful! Thanks for a lovely start to my day.

Loulou in France said...

You're very welcome!

Carina said...

Gorgeous! I especially love the beach huts.

karin@yumandmore said...

Beautiful pictures and I love the blue elements that match the sky and the sea! oh and the seafood of course :-)

Liza in Ann Arbor said...

I love your color posts. Favorite pic this time (though they're all great) is the little beach cabana type houses in a row. Beautiful!

Emm said...

Beautiful. The picture of the port at night is wonderful -- Bayeux?

Gareth Barnes said...

Love the doorways especially. What camera are you using?

Awena Robert said...

Lovely blues! My favourite colour.

Food, Fun and Life in the Charente said...

Gorgeous photos with such bright blues but my favourite is the blue port. Stunning. Diane

Sharon said...

You've just proved why blue doesn't have to be a cod colour. Gorgeous photographs (as always)!

Ann Mah said...

Oh, that sky! Oh, that water! If you're not careful, you may find me on your doorstep begging a bed for a week!

Really lovely! When I was researching something to do with my Pave d'Affinois, I ran across references to Pave d'Auge. Must try it.

I love the seafood sign, and also the tree clinging to the building.

What a great way to group photos.

Andi said...

After the greens, it's the best color in Normandy!

La Torontoise said...

Love the blue and white picture with the cheeses, le livarot et le pave:-)

Loulou, I realize the description of the livarot AOC is from 2007; I guess, by now you have experienced it many time and with various wines? Maybe, you could possibly add a richer description of these two cheeses based on your most recent experiences? In any case, it would be very informative to other readers and cheese lovers.
Thank you, and all the best, Maya

What a lovely collection of blues. I think of Normandy as gold and green - but will now be looking out for the brighter colours too.

Ken Broadhurst said...

These really are beautiful photos, Jennifer. Thanks.

Loulou in France said...

I always appreciate your comments because you are such a talented photographer. Thank you!

Merci! The sea and sky here offer so much inspiration.

Loulou in France said...

I love those too. Can't wait to get back to that part of the Normandy coast for another visit.

That was taken last December in Port-en-Bessin. I couldn't believe how deep, cobalt blue the sky was that night!

Loulou in France said...

I use a Panasonic Lumix and a Pentax K-r.

One of mine too!

Loulou in France said...

That is one of my favorites too.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you've had a nice summer!

Glad you enjoyed this collection of blues!

Loulou in France said...

Anytime darlin'! :)

Pavé d'Auge is divine! Hope you get to try some soon.

Loulou in France said...

It will be very easy to do a 'Normandy Greens' post. There is so much green here. But so much blue too!

La Torontoise
Yes, I've had Livarot many times since first writing about it. I'll have to think about updating the post.

Loulou in France said...

I'll have to start looking for the golds in Normandy. I haven't noticed much of those other than the hayfields. Thanks for giving me new inspiriation!

Thank you for such a nice comment! I appreciate it. :)

Parisbreakfasts said...

Loulou in France said...

Merci! Glad you liked them.

Lady Jennie said...

Great pictures. I loved that thick trunk of the climbing vine.

Loulou in France said...

Thank you, Jennie!
