Paris Excursion: Normandy

April 16, 2012
by CEA CAPA Content Creator
Here are some photos from my recent excursion to Normandy, along the northern coast of France.  I visited the charming town of Bayeux and several key sites from World War II, including Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, and the American Cemetery.  The weather was perfect for exploring the coastline, and I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone interested in history or seeing the French countryside.
