Andrew and I were up early this morning and in the car by 7:30 AM. After about a two hour drive (ugh for traffic), we arrived at the Normandy American Cemetery.
I was here way back in 1997 with my family, but this was Andrew’s first visit and the main reason we left Paris and headed north on Sunday. If you ever have the opportunity to visit northern France, I cannot recommend this enough. We had a private tour this morning of Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the Normandy American Cemetery. Our guide was EXCELLENT and the four hours flew by. Because we are here in January, everything was very quiet and peaceful.
Here are some pictures from our day…let us never forget that so many paid the ultimate price here for the freedom of the world.
We’re back in Honfleur and about to head to dinner.
Have a wonderful evening. xx
