Section III Normandy Coast  - 20th June to 13th July; (23 days incl 6 days shore-leave):

We are planning a slow and measured progress along the Normandy Bay, taking in as many of the drying coastal ports as possible and then taking the canal to Caen, via Ouistrehem, where we could take the ferry home to England  for a family wedding. The whole leg, has us visiting some lesser-seen villages and towns and enjoying the markets, cuisine and reflective culture.
