la douce france

This year we went on holiday to Normandy and Brittany (see next post). Normandy was very nice. We rented a a room with bed and breakfast service at the Domaine de la Tour, which is a great place with very nice people. We stayed for six days during which we visited the beaches in the North of Normandy where the invasion of the allied forces in WWII started with D-Day, i.e. Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach, Sword Beach. It is amazing to see that some of these beaches are almost completely empty during high season (mid August) and nice weather (22 degrees C).
