    Scene of the June 6th D-Day Landings in WW2. Started by looking around the monuments on the headland at St Côme-de-Fresné. Cinema showing, on a 360 degree, 9 screen set up, old video and film clips of the lead up to the landings. Fresh and windy overlooking the sea. Hard to imagine the thousands coming ashore.

    ... suitcases and backpacks in tow and caught a ride to Gare St. Lazare with high hopes we could fineagle our way on to the 7:43am train to Caen. Long story short, we did make the train and managed to even get four seats next to each other, which was trés lucky as many others had to stand for the 2 hour trip...
