Another small batch, Calvados and Auberge de la Truite

The next batch is only thirty photos, so I got this one done this afternoon, too. On the way back from Caen, we found the Christian Drouin distillery, where they make Calvados, Pommeau, and cider, all beverages derived from apples. It's in the Calvados department of Normandy.

Leaving there, we stopped for dinner at a crossroads with two restaurants; the TomTom had identified one, but they weren't open yet and seemed huffy about it. The place on the opposite corner was happy to serve us even though it was on the early side, and l'Auberge de la Truite (Trout Inn) turned out to be one of the best meals of the whole trip.
