Day 5: Honfleur and Caudebec-en-Caux (3)

Mast of RiVER BARONESS in Caudebec-en-Caux

The morning's rain went away during lunch, and by early afternoon, the skies were partly clear in Caudebec-en-Caux. (This photo shows the mast of River Baroness and the town's waterfront.)


Ferry in Caudebec-en-Caux

Just ahead of our mooring, a ferry was tied up with the Pont du Brotonne suspension bridge in the background.


Passengers going ashore in Caudebec-en-Caux

RIVER BARONESS mountain bikes

When we went ashore after lunch, we saw a row of mountain bikes on the floating pier. (River Baroness carries bicycles and Nordic walking poles for use by passengers.)

Warning sign in Caudebec-en-Caux

From the offshore platform, two short footbridges led to the town. (The "slippery surface" warning sign looked like a placard in an ice-skating rink.) 


Normotel in Caudebec-en-Caux

Hotel de Normandie, Caudebec-en-Caux

Two hotels with restaurants were on the waterfront, immediately next to the floating pier: the Normhotel and the Hotel de Normandie.


Caudebec-en-caux with Notre-Dame Church

Straight ahead, the Rue de la Poissonnerie and the Rue des Belles Femmes ("Street of Beautiful Women") led to the town center and the Notre-Dame Church.


Waterfront promenade in Caudebec-en-Caux, Normandy

We turned right and walked along the waterfront, where the local Mairie had built an attractive promenade.


RIVER BARONESS and SEINE PRINCESS in Caudebec-en-Caux

From the promenade, we had a good view of Seine Princess and River Baroness, which still were moored side by side.


The city authorities had thoughtfully provided a self-cleaning unisex public toilet that was accessible by wheelchair users.


Caudebec-en-Caux Tourist Office

The Caudebec-en-Caux Tourist Office was another block or two east along the waterfront. Inside, the helpful manager gave us a free map of the town.

Heading back in the other direction, we found the Hôtel de Ville or town hall just west of the pier.


Musée de la Marine, Caudebec-en-Caux

Beyond the town hall was the Musée de la Marine (Maritime Museum), which was closed during our visit.
