Well, we're still in Normandy at Bayeux today - and this is a magical town with many preserved medieval buildings. When you see some of the photos you could be forgiven for thinking you're looking at somewhere in England's Tudor past. But there's a subtle difference - the Brits paint their buildings in black and white - whereas here they are cream and brown.
Aside from the town, the major attraction is the tapestry, which dates from just after 1066 - there's no accurate date on it's manufacture. But we know it wasn't before, because of course it depicts the story of the events leading up to Harold getting shot in the eye by an arrow, and how William the Bastard became William the Conquerer - we mentioned him yesterday.
Isn't it funny how even back then they had their spin doctors - and how the winning side is always the good guy! Nothing changes !!!
It's a majestic piece of work - unfortunately no photos allowed - it stretches over 70 metres long and appeared to be about 1m high. The picture above has been borrowed from their promotional material.
Meanwhile back to the real world - just had to show you some of the delights from one of the many local patisseries - yum !! You can see the bright sunlight - had to eat them real quick, before they went off !!
