Colin and Terry outside the cottage in St Sauvier, about 40 minutes from Cherbourg. Terry's car.
St Mere Eglis. An allied parachutist got caught on the spire of the church during WWII and there is a model there now to recreate the scene.

Outside the Bayeaux Museum to see the tapestry.
Main street of Bayeaux
Bayeaux street, rain, rain and more rain.
A gorgeous photo Colin took of the canal behind Bayeaux Cathedral.
"Ooooh, croissants with chocolate inside them". Terry and I at the boulangarie in Bayeaux.
At Bayeux Cathedral. Colin, Terry and Pauline under a plane tree that was planted in 1761.
Bayeaux - lace and tapestry shop
Love this shot Colin took of us. Street life in Bayeaux.
"Des Bimbos" who could resist that eh? And notice the name of the mag is "Guts". Don't think that's the body part "des bimbos" are best known for.
An arty shot, no particular reason.
Bayeaux Cathedral, interior
Votive candles in Bayeaux Cathedral.
An interesting past/future sort of thing; the two little guys with their futures ahead of them and behind them a board naming those who sacrificed their futures in the name of their country.
Tudor style house in Bayeaux
Continuing the theme of those who sacrificed their future, this is taken at the American Cemetery near the D Day invasion beaches.
What you can't see, due to the camera flash, is that the Colin, Pauline and Terry are sitting in front of a roaring fire. The woodburner stove was invaluable and this is summer!!
An interesting derelict door at the back of the cottage.
Mont St Michel
The drawbridge over the moat at the entrance to Mont St Michel. The island used to be cut off from the mainland at high tide until about 15 years ago when a permanent causeway was built.
The view over the countryside from about halfway up.
Walking up to the church at the top of the island.
Looking up at the spire.
St Gabriel's Tower, there used to be a windmill on top of this tower.
