Cruising and Les Andelys
10.29.13 - 10.30.13 63 °F
We spent our morning cruising the Seine, as we headed to our next stop of Les Andelys. It was a beautiful morning and the cruising was very relaxing.
After lunch we departed on our excursion for the day. First stop was the Cathedral on Notre Dame from the 11th - 12th Century. The church is starting to have some significant maintenance issues as this small town can not really support it. Because it is an historic land mark, it is eligible for government assistance.
Our final stop was Chateau Gaillard, the castle of King Richard I - Richard the Lionhearted. This was the border between Normandy and France and was of significant strategic importance. The castle was built in under two years - a remarkable achievement.
