  • Day11

    Normandy

    April 25, 2017 in France

    I woke up early and went to the upper deck to take photographs of the sail-in to Cherbourg, France. The temperature was rather cold today about 42°. We met our guide Frederica for the trip down to Bayeaux to visit the cathedral and also to see the Bayeaux tapestry. The cathedral was difficult to photograph on our first walk-through. However, I was able to come back later when fewer people obstructed the view. The way the museum displays the tapestry is brilliant. The use of portable headsets explaining the panels of the tapestry is very convenient. As one walks past, portable headsets explain each panel. For lunch Glenda and I grabbed a savory crepe, called a "galeta" from a little crepe shop. We got it to go and paid only €4. Another, fancier restaurant was charging about €19 for the same food. We walked through the town, and Glenda bought a bit a candy from a little shop. We had passed the little village of Ste. Mere Eglise on the way to Bayeaux. I had attempted to catch a photo of the mannequin dressed as a paratrooper hanging from the steeple. This display has been maintained by the church since John Steele hung by his parachute there during the D-Day invasion in 1944. Glenda asked whether it might be possible to slow down as we passed. Our guide Frederica and our driver Manuela said they could drive through the town and give us a brief photo stop. I got great photos of the outside of the church and of the paratrooper display. We returned to our ship at 4 pm and went for dinner at the Chef's Table at 6 pm. The culinary theme for tonight is "Salty and Sweet," and the cooks outdid themselves in preparing a creative masterpiece of a menu. Later tonight we will see a show featuring some musical hits from Broadway. All in all, I think this may be one of the more memorable days of my life.Read more

    Cherbourg

    August 26 in France

    Port town heavily bombarded and where the German destroyed the port before surrender. There is a rotating bridge across the harbor. The first two pics are taken from there, one looking seaward, the second looking into the port/marina. The others are street scenes in the old town
