    Get your feet wet!

    Moi en la plage d'Arromanches...well, moi won't be there, but if you are in the area, do stop at Arromanches and walk around the beach at low tide. And be glad there are no bullets whizzing by your ears. At least, let's hope there are no such dangers here anymore!

    if these sands could talk...

    Avranche

    Once General Patton began his work the people of the towns he passed through remained so grateful. The first town he liberated was Avranche. The monument here was only the beginning.

    D-Day Grave Yard Statue

    A large memorial statue is part of the Colleville cemetery. The names of the fallen are engraved into stones along side the statue and a large United States flag lines this part.

    Built by the Germans, this Battery had the mission to repeal any attack from the sea. Now, as a museum, you can walk throgh the fields and enter inside the gun rooms.

    Le Memorial de Caen

    by Neit Written Mar 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Caen there is a II World War Museum. It is quite interesting, but if you do not have much time problably it is better to visit the landing beaches or the historic war places.

    Water mill in Bayeau

    by Roadquill Written Oct 21, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just a short walk from the Bayeux Tapistry is a quaint watermill that no longer mills. It pretty much just sits there and lets the water run around it. But it was picturesque.

    Sword Beach

    by Roadquill Written Oct 17, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sword beach was where the Canadians landed and was relatively lightly defended. There are not really hills surrounding overlooking the beach and the beach is a short distance to cross.

    The American Cemetery at St. Laurent

    by morgane1692 Written May 31, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Row after symetrical row of crosses and Stars of David, set across acres of perfectly kept lawn. Every one of these stones marks a life and a story. It's an overwhelming sight.

    equals then and now

    learn something while you're here, will you?!

    They say the greatest and most encompassing WWII museum is in nearby Caen. But when you cannot make it there, this Arromanches D-Day museum is a fine *runner up.*

    and you were there
