First stop in Normandy, France was the 360 degree theater. We all felt like we needed to brush up on our history before we headed to the beaches and the cemetery.
Then, before we actually made it TO the cemetery, we stopped in for lunch.
Little did we know that we would end up having a 5 course lunch for 3 hours!
Course #1: goat cheese salad
Course #2: aperitif to cleanse the palate (apple sorbet with a shot of bourbon–WHOA BUDDY)
Course #3: Pepper steak with mashed potatoes
Course #4: Cheese plate to cleanse the palate
Course #5: Creme Brulee–YUMMY!
After lunch, we headed to the American Cemetary. Unbelievable is the only word. Here are the beaches of Normandy. A lot different from June 6th, 1944 !
