It is beginning to feel like a Cannonball experience. Tired. But having fun! Oh, get over it!
First, from two days ago. The Reporters Memorial Park in Bayeux. An organization – Reporters Without Boarders created a park near the British WWII Cemetery to commemorate reporters who have lost their lives in their line of work. They started with WWII reporters and go through the present. Some years are better than others.
We also visited the German Cemetery in Normandy. It was an American Cemetery, but they moved all the bodies to the “official” American Cemetery and then used this to rebury Germans killed in the war. Not as much care was given, stones are shared – two solders to a grave and the stones seem to be concrete as opposed to marble or granite. Still, a very moving place. It is dedicated to the promotion of peace.
Yesterday and today we also visited Mont St. Michel. As a child, my Dad as a “book of the world”; pictures of interesting and beautiful places. I don’t know what happened to that book, but I’ve always wanted to visit. Yesterday we did! Lovely.
Today, we arrived in Brittany. Food just gets better, scenery spectacular, the soul is very much intact. Only 10:30. I want to go to bet early!
