Day Seven of the Maiden Voyage of Viking Sea...Cherbourg and Normandy


Port Recine in Cap de La Hague, Normandy

For all the time we have spent in France, inexplicably we have never been to the northwest corner of the country and their provinces of Brittany and Normandy. While we didn’t get to Brittany, Cherbourg, was our first port of call in France   This is the heart of French dairy country. It is the home of ( from left to right:) Neufchatel, Camembert, Pont-L’Évêque and Liverot, all cow’s milk cheeses and all are considered among the world’s best.  Unfortunately, and very unlike Viking, our “Taste of Normandy” tour didn’t include so much as a morceau of cheese.  (Instead we had a Crepe and a glass of Cider, both specialités and both somewhat underwhelming.)
