AFTER THE FETE

Following the D-Day celebrations, the party continues.

Bayeux, France

Last year I wrote about how wonderful it would be if Our Tour was inhabitable enough to enjoy the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Bayeux. Well, tant pis.

We weren’t lucky enough to have been in town during the commemorative ceremonies, but my beau parents were and they said it was crazy. A few weeks later and the town is still a buzz with all the energy the visitors, events and decorations brought to this corner of Normandy.

Bayeux, France

The cathedral was lit up in multiple colors. A beautiful jeux de lumière.

  1. I have just found your beautiful blog and feel like I have many chores I will be ignoring so I can read everything! We are readying ourselves for a move to Normandy at the end of the month here. May I ask what region are you in?

    Warmly,
    Anna
