We spent Easter Sunday paying our respects to the veterans of World War II that liberated France by storming the beaches of Normandy. Our first stop was Pegasus Bridge. The Pegasus Bridge Cafe has the distinction of being the first house liberated during the D-Day invasion.
Arromanches 360° to watch a video recreating what it must have like when the Allies landed.
A monument anchors one end of the cemetery.
A mosaic outlining the course of of the European battles of WWII (much like we saw at the Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery in Honolulu) lined the inside of the monument.Omaha Beach. A metal sculpture with sharp lines stands out on the beach.
We quietly reflected on all we'd seen on the journey back to Caen.
