Heaven



Mont St. Michel



We just returned from a best-ever vacation to Normandy, France!

The weather was gorgeous: 70-78 degrees daily.





Le Ferme du Pressoir B&B



The lodging was fantastic - a B&B in the country nearby Bayeux and the D-Day Beaches (www.bandbnormandie.com), hospitable and peaceful and the French almond pastries at breakfast were something I could NOT resist (oops).
I saw sites I've been aching to see since I got here:




D-Day Beaches, American Cemetery, and Point du Hoc










Sainte Mere Eglise


Etretat and HonfleurAnd on a final note... in my opinion any place that is known for it's fine stinky cheese, wine and superb seafood is somewhere I could live forever. Seriously.

I loved my visit to Normandy and was so touched that many of the older people were still thanking Americans for their contribution to WWII. I also had a plate of organ meats without complaint. When in Rome.....Glad you had a great time. Your pictures are excellent.
