Photo Friday: The Beaches of Normandy.

Posted on

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your Halloween festivities yesterday were lots of fun.

For today’s photo, I want to show you a side of Normandy that is still reminiscent of WWII.


While on my educational tour this past summer, I travelled to Normandy to partake in the annual D-Day celebrations. I’ve always wanted to visit Normandy and pay my respects to the lives lost during that tragic time, but actually having the chance to be there on D-Day itself was something out of a dream.

I visited such sites as the American Cemetery and Memorial and the landing beaches of Omaha, Utah, Juno, and Pointe du Hoc. The day was cold and windy, but the sun was shining bright as we made our way from each beach, town, and memorial site. US flags were flying high and to this day the people of Normandy are so grateful for our help during the war. There was nothing quite like the hospitality of the citizens in the Normandy region.
