Old Iron – Interesting Wheels in Normandy

Posted by on August 5, 2012

Well, our boat to Uruguay is not in Le Havre yet, so we’re still hanging around. We’re staying in a small town called Honfleur. For anyone else planning to wait for a Ferry around here, it’s perfect for a camping truck. Just drive to the port / docks, and follow the stream of camping cars over the bridge to the parking area.

It’s a regular little tourist town, and maybe the nicest we’ve seen along the Normandy coast. it has a massive area for camping cars (and 1 unimog) to park overnight for €10 per day, and while we dont often pay anything this is worth it as we are within a stones throw of the town centre. We got a nice suprise yesterday when we went in to do our laundry and get on-line to check the whereabouts of our ship. There was a old car/bike event on, so we got to admire some older American cars and bikes.

Hotel De Ville never looked like this in any old movies I have ever seen

Nicely modified roof with split screen

Everyone likes a nice bike. This one got more than it’s share of admirers

Love the old style fronts with no mudguards. Not sure they are much fun in the rain

Anyone remember chips? I think this girl remembers for sure.

All the bikes roaring and the rockabilly music was too much for this couple.
