A lighthouse.




My favourite light house

Fields with stone walls
A small harbour
This is on top of the cliff the place we will go end of June. ( the little house)
When I was” younger” I would climb up the cliff with my son ( twenty years ago) go up to the little restaurant on the previous picture.

Les parapluies de Cherbourg manufacture.
Do you know the film? Les parapluies de Cherbourg.
They are making very strong expensive umbrellas.


Maybe you are wondering why I took this picture?
We are June 1rst and the D-Day commemorations are beginning! Tonight there will be fireworks all along the coast for the 80th anniversary so all the jeeps and vehicles from the Second World War are on the roads to the beaches!
I found a mug for my son 
Our hotel  we are on top with a balcony

The theatre 

 And market day!

  2. It looks like you had a very nice day. I find it very touching that D-day is still commemorated there.

    Thank you for the opportunity to see this historical place in a different way!!
