My trip to normandy - Day 6, part 1 - A Sunny Walk

June 5th was a another sunny day, so my owner and I went for a walk.

We explored a rural road close to the house.

There were lots of fields full of some kind of grain.

The road let us to a nearby village, where there were lots of WWII army vehicles.

I met this bear, who go to ride on a truck as a mascot.

We admired all the vehicles before walking on.

We walked past a field with lots of army tents.

These were used to stop vehicles I think.

I'm not sure what this is...

The sea!
We were at Omaha Beach again.

There was a small souvenir shop close to the beach where we did some shopping. Then we went to the beach.

There were lots of jeeps on the beach.

Some where just riding around in circles.

And these were parked for a picnic.

Finally some empty beach!
All those jeeps are cool, but some peace and quiet to enjoy the lovely weather is even nicer I think.

We had been here before so we knew how to get back to the house from here without walking back along the same route we used to get here.

When we got back to the house we got out one of the things we bought at the shop: a big bottle of Meuh Cola.

After all the walking we could use a nice refreshing drink, and the Meuh Cola turned out to be really tasty!

Coming next: Games and Fireworks

I was just there last week! And at Omaha beach. Apparently not at the same time though. Would have been pretty hilarious to run into you there. :)
