Earlier this week was the 67th anniversary of D-Day, so here are some pictures of Normandy in honor of all the men and women who so bravely fought for our freedom!
One of the most amazing and serene places to visit is the Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. This somber place overlooks Omaha Beach and the English Channel.
Etched on the inner face of the arc surrounding the statue are the words:
THIS EMBATTLED SHORE,
PORTAL OF FREEDOM,
IS FOREVER HALLOWED BY THE IDEALS,
THE VALOR AND THE SACRIFICES
OF OUR FELLOW COUNTRYMEN
For more great pictures, make sure to look into Budget Travelers Sandbox.
Every Thursday they post new photos from their travels and invite others to join in!
Maybe I’ll see you there.
