      ... maintained. It overlooks Omaha beach and as the tide was out I got a better idea of what took place on 6 June 1944. It is obvious the Americans hold their war dead in such high esteem, the grounds are pristine and there is not a thing out of place. If you could call a graveyard beautiful, then this place is beautiful. Time for a pit stop back at our apple orchard again for the night before we head to Le Mont St Michel tomorrow. It was a wonderful ...

      ... looks huge and this is just a strip of sand however at low tide, the beach literally goes out for miles, it was high tide today when we arrived. We took a walk and read the plaques and memorials. I had a moment on the shore on a bench to myself and tried to imagine the horror and carnage of the day and for the life of me, I found it so hard to grasp. The beach and surrounds are just beautiful and peaceful ...

      We wandered around the town a bit and then settled for lunch at Le Bernieres. Alyssa had the "best burger ever", I had steak with an egg on top (what?) and mom and Kaelyn both had salads. Halfway through lunch I noticed that Kaelyn was not going on and on about ...

      ... the cemetery.

      We were greeted by a sea of white crosses and Stars of David. It is impossible to imagine what 9000 monuments in one place looks like. It puts the loss of the young men (and one or two women) buried here into perspective. We wandered the graves, reading the names of those who had died.

      I had brought a pocket full of small Tennessee flag pins to give to people we had met. I had given a few away, but had a bunch ...

      ... beach, it was parallel to it to create a crossfire and shoot down soldiers as they tried to pass through an opening. What was interesting is that a concrete shield was made facing the beach to hide the muzzle flashes so ships couldn't see it and fire.

      What was interesting about the beaches was how ordinary they were, with the exception of some bunkers still vi sable. You are so used to watching war movies or reading descriptions of all the barbed ...
