Normandy

We started the day with a bus ride from Paris to the town of Arromanches, home of the Mulberry Harbors. Remnants of these portable harbors made from sunken ships and floating barges can still be seen today.  

          

We then made our way to Omaha Beach and the Normady American Cemetery. It is a powerful testament to the sacrifice made by the thousands  of soldiers and other helpers that died in the Normady attacks. 

   

                

In the gale force winds it was uplifting to see the kids bring joy to this hallowed ground. 

   

     

 Our last stop was Point du Hoc,
