Today’s stop was Cherbourg in the Normandy Region of France. Six of us set out in a taxi to venture out into the countryside, first stopping at the seaside fishing village of Saint -Vaast-la-Hougue. Here we went to Maison Gosselin, a gourmet food store which specialized in regional food. Our next stop was in Sotteville and the Theo Capelle Cider Farm a producer of Calvados, hard cider and vinegars for a tour and tastings. We returned to the ship and then hopped on the shuttle bus to go into Cherbourg and walk around the old town.
