Vernon and our bike ride to Giverny

Some bike touring companies offer rides from Vernon, France to Giverny - home of Monet and his famous garden. But we didn't want to be tied down to their schedules so we took the train to Vernon and rented some (really terrible) bikes and rode to Giverny - about 3-4 miles away. It was a perfect way to spend a day - weather was great, being outside biking instead of in a shuttle/tour bus and just lolling around in the beautiful gardens and interesting house and town.

It began with another early train. We walked to Gare St Lazare and took the train to Vernon, the closest train station to Giverny.  This time we just picked up some food in the station for breakfast and a little (much needed it appears) Starbucks coffee...
