4075 Port du Hâble, Omonville-la-RogueOn Friday I went on another hike along le sentier des douaniers of La Hague.  4071 Port du Hâble, Omonville-la-Rogue4072 Port du Hâble, Omonville-la-Rogue4073 Port du Hâble, Omonville-la-RogueThis time I started from Port du Hable in Omonville-la-Rogue toward Port Racine in Saint-Germain-des-Vaux for a total of 14 km.  The distance wasn’t the problem for me but the stone / gravel seashore and paved roadways certainly punished my knees.  It is not a hike that I would recommend unless you are keen on walking several kilometres along loose stones most of the way.  Before you head out, have lunch at the restaurant Le café du port.  The pot of moules-frites is huge and a serving for one actually feeds two!  To drink we had a bottle of cider and for dessert I had the crème brûlée while my friend had the fondant au chocolat (don’t worry, the hike worked off any extra calories).  4077 Sémaphore de Jardeheu, Digulleville4079 Anse Saint-MartinAfter passing the Sémaphore de Jardeheu the shoreline near the Havre de Plainvic and l'anse Saint-Martin comes into view revealed many strange rock formations.  4081 Sainte-Hélène4083 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-Vaux4084 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-Vaux4088 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-VauxAs I got closer to Port Racine, I saw remains of German gun batteries which used to follow along the entire Atlantic coast during World War II.  4086 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-Vaux4085 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-VauxIt was rather strange seeing this solitary sunflower growing directly from the stones along the shore.  Hiking back to the car we took the D45 through the small hamlets of Renet and Les Mesnils, then veering off along the D203 at Hameau-ès-Fours past Hameau-ès-Asselines and La Rivière until reaching l'église Saint-Jean-Baptiste back in Omonville.  4093 l'église Saint-Jean-Baptiste, Omonville-la-Rogue4082 Port Racine, Saint-Germain-des-Vaux4091 Hameau de la Rivière, DigullevilleAll along the way, flowers grew wild along the road or in the neatly planted gardens of people lucky enough to live in this region of La Manche.4092 Hameau de la Rivière, Digulleville
