... the cemetery or the beach below. The cemetery, if such a thing is possible, is a beautiful place. The lawn is immaculate as you would expect it to be and each grave marker appears so brilliantly white it would seem the marble is regularly polished.

... I return to Bayieux on Monday.

Turning north I passed through La Fontaine-St-Come, Asnelles, and arrived at Ver-sur-Mer. I found my way to the B&B where I was to stay.

Walking in holes created by dropped US shells, standing alongside and inside German bunkers complete with the original weaponry was spine tingling and the visit to the US cemetery was the most humbling of experiences as we glanced over 9000 graves of some very very young men. Another advantage of small towns is that ...
