Today, Josh and I took a 3 hour journey, by train and bus, to visit Normandy.
Obviously today was a bit more sombre than previous days of our Paris holiday. We both really wanted to see Normandy, and it was definitely worth the long trip.
We expected to see Canadian memorials at Juno beach, but what really caught us off guard was driving by just regular city parks, and seeing Canadian flags flying ...
... call it a day at this point. C & I stayed in Bayeux - C to wander & shop, me to go to the D-Day museum. Both had a good time.

The other soldiers have been buried on American soil. We spent the afternoon in Bayeux. We found a spot to eat omelettes and crepes - really good.
