It would appear that summer in Normandy consists of three different weather forecasts: looks like it will definitely rain, it’s raining or it’s pouring. Actually, that statement is not entirely true. It should be two forecasts – looks like rain and it is a biblical proportion deluge. It usually pours for anywhere between 2 to 30 min. The rain is so intensive that when you drive into the rain on the highway it feels like the car just hit a brick wall, wipers can’t keep up and you can’t see a darn thing. It soaks everything in seconds and then just as quickly as it came it stops. It rains on average about 10 times per day, a few minutes at a time. We though Normandy would be a beach holiday, but so far we have not even stepped onto the beach once, not even to pick up some pebbles. Luckily there a lot of other things to do, so we are keeping busy, as our Turkish tans fade into oblivion.
