Kites and mussels

Friday April 28th
I’m in Normandy for a few days. Time enough to fly kites from the beach at Cabourg, as many do. Mine was colourful enough, but two teenagers were competing with semi-circular sails big enough to drag them across the sand. After that it was time for moules marinières. Every restaurant here serves them, along with tarte Normandie (an open apple tart), and the three local cheeses, Camembert, Pont l’Évêque, and Livarot. I bought my mussels from the Bistrot du Port at Dives sur Mer, and ate them with baguette, vine tomato, and a fol epi cheese.
