D Day

We spent last night in the city of Bayeaux.  It had some interesting buildings, but we didn't have a lot of time for exploring.  By the time we got there, we were all really tired, and didn't do much but lay around.  We woke to full on fog, and geared up for a wet one today.  We went to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial.   It was quite emotional really.  These were some brave boys. 

 The fog made it quite somber.

 The view to Omaha Beach was hardly visible....disappointing.

But we drove down to the beach so that the DPR could collect some sand, and could 
see a bit better.
This was an important day for him.
We stopped to look at some old cars that were parked down by the beach....
totally made me feel like we were in a movie about WWII.
