I was going to meet some friends that evening on the way home, so I made a bee-line for Tergnier, and then eventually got back to the house in Barisis-Aux-Bois for dinner....

So it was off to Chauny, then Noyon, Compiegne, Beauvais, Rouen......and I missed a turn....and then I ended up lost in the countryside.....fun, but not the best use of time, however I ended up in Le Bec-Hellouin, one of those special villages that are more spectacular than some others.....so it was worth it.

I am glad you are enjoying the pictures. I personally am espcially pleased with the pictures I got of Villers Bretonneux and Peake Wood Cemetery on the previous page. It was one of those days when the light was just right. None of the pics are retouched or edited by the way.....they are what they are.

Really enjoying this report (and your previous one too). I live only 60 miles from Piesport on the Mosel, so I am a regular visitor and know the area well.

Did you get a better picture of the Zundapp KS600 you parked next to at Pegasus Bridge?

Best

Not my first time seeing all this stuff, but exciting to think of all the interesting things I was going to get to see in the following days.

I headed out to Ouistreham after observing some of the activities going on at the bridge. Once I got up to the beach, I hung a left, and drove along the beach heading west.

I headed on into the countryside and headed to a village where I had met some people in 2009. I had been hoping to camp with some re-enactors, and one had invited me to join them, but when I actually found them, much to their surprise, I found I was not really invited, and had to seek other lodging. I met some people on the side of the road who helped me out and got me set up with a place to plant my tent. So now, four years later I thought I would pop in and say hello. I was not worried about lodging this trip as there was plenty of camping available, but I thought it would be nice to see them again…..so I pulled up. They were shocked and thrilled to see me…..so let the fun begin….food, drink….and they insisted I stay in their guest room. Out came the L’Eau de Vie….or moonshine too….
