This is an incredibly beautiful baroque building. Years ago I've only seen that gorgeous staircase in pictures. I was so seduced by it that I decide I've got to see it. I wasn't disappointed. It really beautiful.
I think this is the Cardinal's residence. Reminds of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Munich who spent over 40 million Euros on the renovation of the Bishop's residence. I think Pope Francis removed him as Bishop.
Anyway these are old residence and its not the Cardinal's fault if he gets to stay in such palatial accomodations.
This reminds me of Port Wen of Doc Martin, the British comedy show.
I was asked, 'where are the people? I guess when we see a beach we expect it to be filled with people. This was in October, not beach weather. I arrived on a cold, wet and dark morning by taking the train and bus from Rouen. There was no one around.
I couldn't believe it when I saw these chalk cliffs, reminds me of Etretat which is just a few miles south. This is the Atlantic coast. Don't you love the ocean. I live near the Pacific ocean. I walked up the hill at the back of my house the other morning. I looked out and saw the Pacific ocean down the hill. Wow, I love where I live.
The beautiful St Etienne, it was not opened. I just wander here to take a few pictures before the real reason for my being in Fecamp opened for visitors.
