Tuesday, 2 October -- Giverny

We docked at Vernon around noon, so the morning was spent on Disembarkation briefings and for those who like them, oysters in the lounge. Lunch consisted of specialties of Normandy and was followed  by an ice cream party.
Then in the afternoon, we were off to Giverny, the long-time home of Monet and his family.
He developed amazing gardens, familiar from his paintings.

It was a bit magical walking through them. His home is open as a museum. In the art gallery, we saw a special exhibit of the work of the Neo-Impressionist, Henri-Edmond Cross. I wasn't familiar with him, but I liked many of his works.
After dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed Caroline Nin's Tribute to Edith Piaf, in song and story.
