France Part Deux

We stayed in Versailles for 3 nights then left for Normandy. We made a quick stop in Etretat to see these rocks.

Then we went to Omaha beach

There is an amazing American cemetery there where you can pay your respects. France has several beautiful American cemeteries.

Then we walked to Pointe du Hoc where some bad@$$ Army Rangers made history by putting the beat down on some Nazis. There are some lovely (some not) monuments and the water is beautiful. It is so serene and hard to imagine such a bloody fight happening there.

This is the not so lovely monument...really?
