Hmmm im not sure if today we got up early or not... i think we did. we caught the bus to the RER then caught the Grandlines to ?? then caught a bus to Etretat. =] did we miss our first train? not sure.. i think that mightve been giverny..  anywhos... okay the train ride from the grandlines to wherever we were going took around 3 hours? i dunno.. i think i was sleeping most of the time.. but when i woke up and from what i remember the scenery was beautiful.. we hopped on a bus to etretat which took another 30 mins? im guessing..

it was a small town by the coast.. i saw pics of the this place on the internet and i can tell it was going to be a fun place. and sure enough this place was beautiful! we walked toward the shore where there was a board walk.

almost like cliffs of moher
. oh wait.. before that we went into the tourist office and it was raining... but it cleared up.. and when we were at the board walk (made of concrete and stones)  we decided to turn right. up. we saw the arches and climbed up the stairs and the side of teh hill.. or maybe mountain? not that high so i think its a hill.. jenn was a bit apprehensive about climbing but the views are just too amazing to pass up. =] there were also french kids throwing rocks.. not at us.. but it was pretty close.. this is the first incident with french kids...  the cliffs reminded me of ireland.. it was great! the weather was perfect.. cool breeze and the sun was comming out. me and tracy started singing the sun will come out thanks to jenn.. then we headed back down toward the shoreline.
. the beach consisted of smooth stones.. not very good to walk on but it didnt hurt so much as sharp rocks.. then we wanted to find food!!

we found this little place and ordered two types of mussels.. one cooked in white wine and the other with this really awesome sauce called normandy? pronounced normand.. it was really really amazing! rivaling that of the mussels we had the previous year with lili and jegs in paris. probably even better?? hmmm  then we took another bus to?? cause the other bus to?? was going to be not for another 2 hours? oh wait! the bus was to la Havre!  from there we took the train back to paris.. we walked around paris for a bit trying to find a place to eat for diner but no luck.. so we headed back home to chessy.

scratch that! we didnt go home yet.. we saw the champs ellysee. and jenn had this horrible chips and 2 microwaved hotdogs for 11 euros.. then we found a japanese noodle place and had a great meal. atleast i enjoyed mine.. now we headed back home! =]
