AT 6:00 a.m. the morning of Day 4, we could feel the ship start moving. We would be arriving in Rouen at 1:00.

The morning of cruising down the river was a great respite from the busy days we had so far. It was also beautiful to see the French countryside and little villages that we passed by. Our Excursion choices for the day were varied:

Picturesque Honfleur on foot
Rouen Farm & Countryside
Jumieges Abbey & Country Bike Ride 
Rouen Walking Tour
You also had the option of touring the town on your own if you wished

Although it was a bit pricey, we opted for the Abbey and bike tour. 



This is a sample of what it is like to sail down the river and see the quaint villages as you go by. I loved every minute of it.

Frist, the  Jumieges Abbey. The abbey was founded in 654 and was a Benedictine monastery. The ruins are beautiful. 





Our guide on this day was not the greatest. She rushed us through, but we were all ready for our bike ride!!

This was one of the most special family things we did. It was great being outdoors, biking and watching these two having so much fun!!

One of the few group pictures that we got!!



Coming up on some serious cyclists!! 

Dr. T stayed behind us to make sure no one had any problems. He also stayed with an elderly man who was with us. 

I loved seeing all the old buildings on these farms.


I loved seeing them race each other and have so much fun!!

Visiting with the natives!!

Not many vineyards in this area of France, but we passed by this one.

Notice the church in the background. Every small town we passed had a church with a beautiful rooster weathervane on the top!!

Overall, it was a great day!! It was a great way to see France!! I would do the bike tour again in a heartbeat!!
