OUR VISIT TO NORMANDY AND D-DAY
It was seven o'clock Tuesday morning and we were all standing outside of Mary and Phil's apartment waiting for the taxi cab that we'd ordered using the Internet. He arrived right on the dot of seven and we were off on our adventure to Normandy for two days and one night. Best of all the rain has stopped and we're expecting mostly wind for today when we arrive in the north.
We had people waiting for us when we arrived in Caen to take Phil off of the train and into the station. We crossed the street and picked up our rental car at Enterprise Rental Service. We have a black Citeron with GPS...this time build-in. She finally got us out of Caen and over to the Caen Memorial, but not without lots of U-Turns!
By this time it was nearing four o'clock so we decided to head for our hotel outside of Bayeux for the night. We had some problems with the GPS and actually ended up using an app on my phone to get us to the Hotel. But it's clean and close to the highway for tomorrow. We walked next door and had an early dinner before playing two hands of our favorite game in the lobby. I've been busy with two days of journals to do. But, love to do it while it's fresh in my mind. We had rain just as we arrived at the hotel. Hoping for sunshine tomorrow as we visit the American Cemetery.
