From our campground, we drove to Gold Beach and the circular 360 degree museum located in Arromanches. It was a good reenactment of the battle for Gold Beach with lots of real footage. We stood for 20 minutes and listened to the sounds of battle and watched the bombings. It was quite intense!
Our next stop was another museum in the town of …
... Atlantic wall, field guns, and memorials. Then you have the opportunity to walk on to the beach. It is the strangest sensation to walk from a museum where you have been looking at photos and videos of fighting, death, and destruction... and then walk on to a beach where children are playing in the surf and kite surfers are out on the water enjoying the windy day. Life goes on, I suppose.
We had a bit of ...
Out the door at 9 am this morning and straight down to the Museum at Arromanches beach front. Very interesting history on the floating harbour that was built in England and towed across the channel to be put in place 2 days after D-Day, a plan devised by Winston Churchill, very clever.
Spent about two hours at Arromanches then head over to the Omaha Beach museum and a great view of the beach itself. We lunched at a small Creperie before continuing on to ...
... our villa to play some cribbage and relax. We got the relaxing in but not the cribbage, perhaps tomorrow. (Jerry's not to anxious as Kathy has been giving him a whipping as of late)
We went out for a bite around seven and then walked the streets a bit but everything except for the restaurants and pubs were closed. We headed back and were safely tucked in for the night by 9:45.
Another day in paradise,
A very busy and exciting day. It's also Bastille Day (France's National holiday) so there will be a lot going on!
We start our day by visiting the 360 degree cinema to find out about the Mulberry Harbour in Arromanches. We then go to a fantastic museum in Arromanches and to look at the mulberry Harbour that still exists 71 years after the D Day landings.
From Arromanches we then travel along the coast to Colleville.
