We were feeling a little lazy this morning and didn’t set off until 08:25 am. Five minutes later we were walking around and/or shopping in La Planquette. An hour later we were in Saint-Lo and spent a good hour there before heading northward to Grandcamp. Forty minutes of Grandcamp later we were back on the road again. We reached Marigny for a brief stop just after 13:00 pm. Half an hour later we had reached Arromanches-les-Bains the home of Musee du Debarquement – The D-Day Museum – on the Normandy coast.
The museum was built on the site of the artificial Mulberry Harbour which was constructed in 1944 and which provided the key to victory in Normandy. You can read much more about the importance of this site by visiting the official museum website.
At 14:40 we headed off yet again and reached our goal, a car park for a sports complex, in Colleville-Montgomery at about quarter to four in the afternoon. Plenty of time for eats, drinks, and walks. We did the lot!
Please note that some of the photos in these albums were taken whilst on the move and so may look a little wierd. I have included them as they do show the sort of scenery we travelled through.
