Bayeux and the D-Day Beaches

Travelled inland a little to visit Bayeux and view the tapestry.
Bayeux certainly do not make life easy to park a MotorHome!!
We only saw the tapestry because we really wanted to and persevered to find a parking space. 4 circuits later…

We visited Gold, Juno and Sword beaches along the coast. There are allied forces flags flying all around this coast. It was certainly a thought provoking day. You might know your history better than I do, but I found it amazing to think the British forces towed a concrete floating harbour to Arromanches to land equipment. Much of this is till floating after 70 years!
