Shared Photos – Post #18

We continue to ask our clients and friends to share their travel photos so that we could post them and remind ourselves of the joy which travel brings AND of which it will bring again, when conditions allow.

Today’s photos are from our own Don McCann and highlight the Normandy region of Northern France, as seen on an Avalon River Cruise:
