Before returning our rental car, we went to the beach one last time. We found a marina with a small beach totally covered in shells. It was sunny and beautiful -- and I wish we could have revisited all the Normandy beaches in good weather, but we had to go. We took a two-hour train from Caen to Paris St. Lazare, a cab ride through Paris to Gare de Lyon, and a TGV train through Dijon to Basel. We were back home at 1100 pm. It was a great week.
