Road Trip Part 2 - Calvados

Honfleur Bridge

Next stop! Bayeux. 
Since its the 70th Commemoration of D-Day (the last ever), why not visit the place where WWII was? Like I said before, it's hard to believe France is a peaceful place from all the photos taken. I don't know about you but sometimes you really can't enjoy the view and site seeing wonders when you're with a tour. So a road trip is definitely more flexible if you don't like to rush like we do. 




First dinner we had in Bayeux 
Pomme Galore! 
Tart Tartin 
My room for the next couple of days
The first hotel was very pink, then to a different colour palette, yellow. 

Breakfast at Manior de Carel
Fresh Raspberry from the owners yard
View from 360 museum
Looking over the remaining Mulberry Harbour at Gold Beach in Arromarches.



Galette for lunch 

After lunch we drove along the coast from Gold Beach to Omaha Beach.
The Longues Battery

Battery totally got bombarded
The American Memorial Cemetery 


Les Braves



We decided to go back into the town on Bayeux and headed for dinner.


We were actually looking for this local restaurant which we found in one of the guide books we had. Funny thing is, were ever we tried to input the address to the GPS, we seem to end up going to the back door of the venue or place we were trying to head to. Just all the fun of travelling really.

Garlic Butter Escargot
Duck Confit
