In the first week of March 2018 we have visited some sites associated with the D-Day landings in June 1944. Some may better know this as the horrific opening scenes to Saving Private Ryan. That was Omaha beach. We visited Omaha beach, and also Gold beach. The cannons and rangefinding bunker at Longues sur Mer, the remains of the Mulberry Harbour near Arromanche-les-baines. We also saw the US Cemetery and memorial at Omaha beach and some tanks outside the Overlord Museum.
The weather has warmed up and we’ve seen a bit of sun and rain which is welcome after all the freezing weather recently.
