October 12, 2013: Honfleur was one of the favourite locations for the French artists (Monet, Sisley, Boudin and Dufy). These Impressionists were drawn to Honfleur by the special quality of light in the Seine estuary and the unspoiled medieval town.

 In many paintings done by the Impressionists, one can see this same harbor landscape. Amazing!!
