In on the shuttle bus, cloudy but still very hot. Dropped near the Volcano, "Le Havre's most conspicuous landmark". Conspicuous means "striking", it is striking but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and do I think it's beautiful? Guess!
Next a stroll along Quai Lamblardie where we
found a statue of Francois 1st.
We did notice that there was a fountain in the Bassin du Commerce (the stretch of water from the War Memorial) but, everytime I went out to get a photo of it, it shut off! Not everytime, after we'd done all our perambulations I managed to get one (but not from where I wanted it). Ah well, life's like that.
I left Edna here because I wanted to pop down and see the rather strange structure which looked like a load of shipping containers! What is it? It's arches made of what are meant to look like coloured shipping containers to celebrate 500 years of Le Havre!
Anyway, back to pick up
Edna and to St. Joseph's Church. It is huge but not the most inspiring
building (in my opinion).
Then a stroll up to the Town Hall. I do like fountains!
