Today, we toured some of the Normandy Beaches and learned more about them. We got dressed in our Sunday best and went to see Omaha Beach. We went inside to discover a bit more about D-Day and the following events. We then went to a French ward for church. I was surprised that they had translators!

Just heard that Mark Webber has won the FI at Silverstone, more good news.
See you tomorrow.
