... flight via Guernsey, train from Birmingham to Wolverhampton and the first part of my journey was over when Pat picked me up from the station. The pretty spring blossoms were very welcoming. An evening of final sorting before an early night. Alarms are set for 4.45am!!
... and I wanted to be there 2 hours before. Lol.
Dee was still out for the count so I went and done the dishes and had a shower and shave before Dee got up.
We were then packed up and ready to go a lot earlier than expected. It only took 30mins and we were there by 7.55 !

... tunnels long overgrown by vegetation. The entire area around Pointe du Hoc was severly bombed by the Allies, as they sought to "soften up" the Gerrman forces in preparation for the Rangers' asault so there are gigantic craters everywhere (some 20 feet deep) and many destroyed bunkers. It's an eerie feeling walking among the cratered landscape.

I must say that I feel we have thoroughly explored the D-Day Beaches now. Both of us liked the American Cemetery Information Center the best of all the exhibits, although all are certainly worthwhile. We both agree that Omaha Beach would be the one to see for anyone who only has time to visit one of the beaches on a short visit.
On to Brittany ...
... nice and beautiful there, and also it has an amazing view of the sea on the northern side of the cemetery.
