Normandy


This is an artist's impression of the house we stayed in while we were in Normandy.  We were lucky enough to see it before we left, after spending an amazing time here.  Ten family members lived under the same roof for over a week and it was a whole lot of fun.  We were here with my Father-in-Law to attend the 70th D-Day Anniversary, which he took part in all those years ago.  It was an amazing week, one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that none of us will ever forget.  I will be sharing our experiences and lots and lots of photos.

  7. Great painting...and I love that they included that one woman's laundry out her window. She was a smart tourist I'd say!

  8. that's pretty cool he was part of D-Day. We hear the history of D-Day and hear the glory of victory, but watching stuff like Saving Private Ryan made me realize how much challenge they were up against.

  11. Love that old home... How is your FIL doing now? Hope he is okay... I'm sure that trip and being with family was very special not only for him but for all of you.

    Have a great day/weekend. Hope you enjoy(ed) my Steam Locomotive blog post today... I'm so passionate about trains since my Dad worked for the railroad.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
