Day 2: Les Andelys and River Seine (2)

Eglise Saint-Saveur sign in Les Andelys

Our walking tour ended at the Church of Saint-Saveur in Petit-Andelys. (The church was locked, so we couldn't see the interior.)


Statue of Christ in St-Saveur Church, Les Andelys

Construction of St-Saveur began in 1198, and some elements of the present-day church--such as the statue of Christ between the entrance doors--date back to the 13th Century.


Grapes on Christ's Arm, St-Saveur Church

The bunch of grapes on Christ's arm commemorates the wine production that once took place in Les Andelys.


Half-timbered houses in Les Andelys

After the walking tour, we explored the village center of Peti-Andelys on our own. In this photo, you can see a few of the village's many half-timbered buildings. (Chateau Gaillard is visible on the hilltop above the grey roof.)


Hotel de Normandie in Les Andelys

The 18th Century Hotel de Normandie, once a post house, is now the B&B Villa Alienor. (For other hotels in and around Les Andelys, see this page.)


House and garden in Les Andelys

As we walked around Petit-Andelys, we peeked through an open gate to admire this impressive house and its back yard.


Signs in Petit-Andelys

Directional signs in the downtown Petit-Andelys pointed to the tourist office, the nearest motorway, and nearby towns.


Bakery sign in Petit-Andelys

Another sign identified one of the two bakeries in Les Andelys.


Gift shop in Les Andelys

The village had several attractive gift shops and art galleries. The shops attracted umbrella-toting guests from River Baroness and another vessel that had moored after our ship's arrival in Les Andelys.


Lady with fox terrier in Les Andelys

Many years earlier, we'd visited Normandy with Yodel, our Wire-Haired Fox Terrier, so we couldn't resist photographing this alert-looking dog and its owner.


Postal carrier in Les Andelys

Across the street, a postal carrier was making her rounds by bicycle.

Gangway to Pontoon 1 mooring in Les Andelys

Our "all aboard" time was 12:30 p.m., so we reluctantly followed the handful of other River Baroness passengers who were walking back to the ship.


Gangway of RIVER BARONESS

Soon, the gangway was lifted on board.
