Normandy Nines Cramming In Adventure
Sunshine Soaked, Cliff Climbing, Arrow Shooting Fun Continues.
Day 2 started bright, early and full of enthusiasm. A swap of groups enabled the boys to undertake archery and rock climbing with Day 2 ending on the beach at Hauteville Sur-Mer, Basse.
Day 3 is already well underway, starting in the surf at Omaha Beach, the landing area used by Allied forces in the WWII D-Day invasion. Today, the beach is dotted with the remains of German bunkers. On the shore, the stainless-steel sculpture Les Braves commemorates American soldiers. Behind the beach is the Musée Mémorial d'Omaha Beach, also recognising the invasion. Nearby, the Overlord Museum displays WWII tanks, artillery and dioramas.
