Yesterday was June 6th, D-Day… I was at work and wanted to post the pictures I took of the trip out to Normandy, on April sorry these are a day late.
Taken out on the Beach in front of the Musée du Débarquement , an Indoor & outdoor museum commemorating WWII’s Normandy campaign & D-Day landings. Place du 6 Juin 1944, 14117 Arromanches-les-Bains, France
The pill boxes on the hills of Longues-sur-Mer battery, Batterie allemande de Longues sur Mer, Huge, preserved WWII gun installations, built by the Germans to defend France from sea invasion.
Check out the cliffs in front of these guns, on google maps you can also see how far back they are from the beach.
