... I also grabbed a little bottle of French Champagne to cheers my birthday friends. After shopping we headed to Longues Sur Mer which is where the 4 big guns are left from the Normandie landings, part of the Atlantic Wall built by Hitler as a last line of defence against the Allies. Quite a sight to behold. Next we headed to Colleville where the American Cemetery is located. What a sombre time. There are just over 9,000 graves at this site and it ...

It was also heavily bombed so when you see it from above it looks like the moon with all the craters. All the craters are still there so we had to walk around them all to get to the "shore."
