Orbec is a lovely small town in Normandy where we had planned to go.
On the way there, I caught sight of this statue which was overlooking the road.
It was right in front of Beuvillers cemetery and was a monument to the soldiers of WWI, erected in 1923.
A visit to a cemetery is something I can’t resist, especially with my camera along.

And then we drove on towards Orbec, a small Norman town with a lovely church and old houses.
But on the way there, we caught sight of another monument on the edge of the road.
In Normandy, there are a lot of these roadside crosses also called calvaries. But most of the time, they aren’t that colourful. Just a cross.
It seems that they were erected at the border between two villages.
Here’s a close-up of a wall to show you how these old houses were built
Unfortunately, our visit was cut short by heavy rains, so we had to rush back to our car and drive home.
