After staying the night in Dives-sur-Mer, we explored a little bit of the town. However, it was raining and very cold! But never fear, a little rain cannot spoil our smiles!
We went by car to a local seafood market. They bought mussels for lunch. The sellers laughed at me because I kept my distance from the dead fish. I just don’t have the heart to even look at the live fish or crabs or lobsters.
Then again by car, Marine, Yumi, and I hopped out in the rain in the center of Dives. Because of the suppressing rain, we dived into a cathedral. Sadly, the cathedral was being worked on and hard to see the architecture. The cathedral was quite small and crud, but the history was interesting. On the west wall above the main doors, the names of all the men who went with William, Duke of Normandy, to England are listed.
A kind woman raved about our lolita dresses. She was so pleased and happy to see us for some reason. She was so sweet. She then gave Marine some money and told us to go buy something sweet!
After Maine bought us some sweets, we walked with umbrellas up to the old wooden market. It is amazing that it is still standing! I wish there were more markets in the USA.
Once again umbrellas up, we went to the old center of town. I guess, when town was still a wee village, it looked like this.
Soon, we went back for lunch and to our happiness the sun came out for the rest of the day! So, we continued our adventure!
