Bayeux Day 1
Today we left from Dover and headed towards Bayeux. We got on a ferry
to that went from Dover to Cailis. The ferry was nice, it had several
bars, an arcade and a couple of coffee places along with some shops.
When we landed in France, we visited several historical sites before we
went to our hotel. We visited Pegasus Bridge and Gold beach. Pegasus
bridge was a key route out of the beaches of Normandy for the Allies,
and was captured by the 2nd airborne. After the bridge we visited a
couple sections of Utah Beach, one was liberated by the French and the
other was liberated by the Americans. On one of the beaches there was a
high cliff that one of my classmated almost ran off. He only stopped
because of some leftover razor wire form WWII. We got to the hotel late
so we didn't have much of a dinner, just a simple meal from the hotel
restaurant that was paid for by the school.
Pictures follow, you know the drill
