Manly is was so nice to once again stroll along a beach, filling our lungs with its salty air. The little changing cabins that border the promenade named for people in cinema that have visited Deauville remind you of its heyday as the resort town of the rich and famous. It was very quiet as we we walked the promenade, as the high season had not yet hit the town, but you could see preparations were well underway for the influx of holidaymakers that will descend in August.
After previous summers spent at Saint Tropez and Nice it was refreshing to visit another French sea-side town, still beautiful and grand, much more relaxed. It was a lovely way to spend the last morning of our holiday before the drive back to Paris.
