La Victoire and Ascension.

8 May 8 km - 48.54 min.
9 May 10.13km - 61.24min., +16ºC.
Both days cool, cloudy, with a light breeze, very pleasant. 

It's been raining a bit, and everything has suddenly turned fresh green.

The Eighth is La Victoire - VE Day and the ninth is Ascension, both public holidays in France. The roads are empty and it’s very quiet. 

There was only one farmer planting maize as we ran. 

I've taken this photo of a weather-beaten road side crucifix as the Sun was looking down on Jesus. Madonna is hiding in a glass-covered niche beneath his figure. See more photos on my Photos of Normandy blog.
