Morning in Honfleur
It was a sunny spring morning in Honfleur with a bit of haze in the hills. I was always inspired by the paintings of Eugene Boudin, so my mom, a friend, and I stayed in Deauville, and took day trips to Honfleur and Trouville from there. I was able to see the beaches and marinas that inspired both Boudin's and Monet's paintings. Honfleur is peaceful in the mornings while shopkeepers and artists set up their shops for the day. After circling the marina a couple of times to see the buildings and boats from all angles, my mom and I stopped for an espresso at a dock-side cafe, then got lost in the town's alleyways.
