Thank you! There was lots of beauty around it would be hard to get ugly pictures
I enjoyed the images sharing of history. Well done. Just imagine all the events taking place here years ago. Now – because of the sacrifices of so many there is peace on these shores without the constant battering of the machine guns and shells taking life and limb. Thanks for sharing
So glad you enjoyed the pictures. I’ve visited a lot of battlefields and it always amazes me how peaceful of places they are now. It’s very moving and humbling to take in. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts
I agree. Thanks for all you do to continue highlighting them.
It is my honor to do so 🙂
Oh my goodness, M.B.! It looks like you had an epic adventure! I can’t wait to spend time with all these beautiful photos. I really love the cathedral ones in this set, although all of them look amazing.
It was a very powerful and moving trip on many levels. Yes the cathedrals were amazing!!! So big! One of them had the pipe organ going and it took my breath away. So glad you are enjoying the photos.
I am just so amazing at how old and grand and majestic buildings are in other countries. The U.S. is cool, but our buildings usually don’t come with such the weight of history.
Agreed. I also feel like the US is more interested in building up places instead of preservation. Therefore a lot of old buildings get knocked down.
Yay! I hope so!
Wow! That was a indeed a great tour indeed – straight from the Longest Day!
Ooooh I love that book! Haven’t seen the movie yet, but the book is one of the best about D-Day I think.
It’s worth watching – Like all the older black and white films it gives you a bit of a potted history as well. The book is great yes.
You are so very, very lucky to be able to see these very Historical area’s, that I would just love to see for myself. I know that this would not happen. My Father, Wilford F. Lawson landed in Normandy with the 82nd Airborne on June 6th, 1944. My Mother, Dorothy J. Lawson was stationed in London at the Allied HQ at this time. She tracked all the movements of Allied Forces on a Glass Board. I have a Image of them both taken in Paris, France just before they were married. Real nice photos there, M.B. Henry.
You are right, I feel very lucky and blessed to have had the opportunity. I’m not sure it will ever come around again but I hope it does. I’m glad the pictures were able to give you a window into such places – that is amazing about your mom and dad. Cheers to them!!!
Wonderful series of photos MB, such a sense of peace and tranquility. How transient that seems in these troubled times.
Glad you liked them! I hope you have a great trip in May, I will be looking forward to those posts 🙂
