France day 3 – cemeteries, rain and shopping

The above pretty much sums up today. The route was a slightly odd one from Bayeux to Sainte-Mere-Eglise via Colville-sur-mer then down to Avranches.

This morning we visited the extraordinary cemeteries of the German and American second world war forces. In all honesty they aren’t my sort of visit but the sheer scale of each can’t help but affect you.

Then on to Sainte-mere-Eglise for a quick trip round their market and their beautiful church. A really lovely looking place.

On then to Avranches and a bit of shopping and then some more shopping.

Tonight we had a lovely meal and then a bit of a wander around Avranches before heading back to the hotel for a few games of Yahtzee!

All in all and leaving aside the mainly pi55 poor weather it’s been a good day and a real shame we’re off home tomorrow. Still got lots to do though!
