The past few days have been amazing exploring Normandy. We have been so busy! It has been a blast. There have been so many interesting things we have done. On Wednesday we went to see Joan of Arc monument where she was burned alive. There was a beautiful church there. We also went to Giverny where Claude Monet lived and painted. His gardens were one of the prettiest things I have ever seen!! We also had our picture made on the tiger tank...one of the greatest tanks in military history! Yesterday, Thursday we went to the Canadian cemetary, which was a neat experience. They actually put quotes and ages on their tomb stones, which makes it a little more personal and emotional. After that we went to Bayeux and saw another castle that William the Conqueror lived in. We saw the Bayeux tapestry. It was pretty neat. Today was awesome!! We went to Mont St. Michelle which is a huge abbey! It was so gorgeous and huge! I bought many souvenirs...maybe too many. I had a lot of fun there. Afterward we went to a German cemetery and then on to Chef Du Pont, which is where Mr. Riddle, the man from class went down in France in a para-glider in World War II. It was pretty neat. We took a picture with the VFW flag. We head to Saumur tomorrow and then off to Paris! The trip is half way over! It has been great so far and I am sure its going to just get even better!
I love it here!!! Can someone please send my daughter so I can live here forever!?!? I have had such a great time visiting all the amazing sites, exploring the countryside, not to mention meeting my left brain. Chelsea L. is awesome, she's like having the sister I never had. We are so much alike, IT'S SCARY!!!
