Don't worry, it'll all get much busier in March when they start electing the next group of village idiots. Sorry, I mean municipal counsellors - I always get those two mixed up,  especially in Normandy. Ed.

I believe it's Etretat. Ed. 

Yes, it’s certainly one of the Vissentinis.  Three to choose from; not sure what the visual differences are between them in the appearance of the foredecks.

But I think you’re confusing the name of Normandy’s most notable costal landmark with everyone’s favourite French delicacy served a point with frites and sauce poivre! 🤣

Yes, Etretat not entreat, sorry.

Surely that's Mont Saint Michel.

Maybe I should have said “attractive natural feature that is worth the effort to go and see”! That would have disambiguated it! 😉

It's Connemara, she's the only one of the Visentini's with the grate on the bow.

The Tat has a grate on the bow and the right colour.

Correct. But do they both have the raised platforms on each side? 

Ed. 

Looks like it but the image from Instagram certainly looks like Etretat.

Yeah they do, both of them have the platforms. They're clearer on Etretat when she's Norman Voyager and when Connemara is Baltic Amber. I think the only obvious difference is that Etretat doesn't have the vent covers. I noticed the bow railings when Connie was in ANEK colours and we first saw pictures of her, never noticed them on Etretat before... Nice one Ed.
