In the morning we took Daisy for her tapeworm treatment ready for crossing back to the UK on Thursday. After that we decided to explore the inland town of Eu. Dominating the small town is the former royal palace which dates back to the 16th century. Prior to the palace there was a castle where William, Duke of Normandy, the future William the Conqueror and King of England was married in 1050 and in 1430, Joan of Arc as a prisoner of the English spent a night there, during her journey to Rouen.

As we walked in the park around the palace we discovered a beech tree that started life in 1585 and now stands 35 metres in height and has a girth of 5.5 metres.

We then explored the town and discovered the historic hospital and the church before heading out towards the coast before the weather came in.
