    mmm, yes, nice light, it would have been a great experience being there on Bastille day, with all the red, white and blue bunting everywhere. I was there in May this year, we only stayed two nights and took the ferry over to Jersey, hmm, never got to see any blue skies though.

  • yes, I suspect it would be windy and wet at certain times. In photos I took on those days we spent there, in the middle of summer, we all had coats on, most of the time! a beautiful, magical place nonetheless:)
