... was definitely the most interesting part. They had a whole huge section of wall and a house that they had unearthed when they were building the museum (pic 1). You could still see the fresco on the wall of the house. It makes one wonder about the lives of the people who lived there. Kids running a stick along the wall, a family around a table eating, etc. The picture I took does not do justice.
One of the most beautiful statues they had there was of the Roman goddess ...
... So pretty much all I did today was go to church after church.
The first one I went to was dedicated to Saint Hilaire (bishop in 350 AD). Honestly, he seems kinda dull compared to the other saints I’ve run across on this trip. No destruction of villages or anything. He just wanted to have peace between the different factions of Christianity. I really liked the church as it was nearly empty (pic 2).

Left Arromanches about 9.30am and drive through Bayeux onto Rennes where we lunched at the Golden Arches, purely because they had the convenience of food and toilets at the same venue.
After lunch we continued on, mostly on the motorway, however Madam Navman did lead us astray every now and then and we did drive through some small villages and countryside as we tried to skirt around the bigger cities.
Arrived at Poitiers at 4.30 pm, only 465 kms covered all up, ...
