Photo Scrapbook: Morning in Honfleur

Doug and I found Honfleur a charming harbor town rich in history and filled with unique shops and galleries.

Honfleur was generally a significant transit point for goods and its maritime trading made it prosperous yet picturesque. In fact, Honfleur, frequently called the City of Painters, was a favorite subject of Claude Monet.

Many of the houses in this charming French harbor town have slate-covered frontages.

Lovely hotel overlooking the safe, quiet harbor.

A beautifully preserved carousel on the marina boardwalk.
