We walked to the statue of Napoleon and passed the city hall. We saw a memorial plaque to the soldier/officer who liberated the city, weeks after D-Day. We walked around the special garden and then had a lovely lunch along the quai.
We thought we we'd whizz through the castle and thence to Canterbury, but we walked up the hill, toured the underground tunnels where they planned the Dunkirk rescue, climbed a tower, had lunch etc., and that was the splendid day. The visitor bureau volunteers met us at the bus shop in town and were VERY helpful.
Visiting the castle and walking the ramparts. The castle art museum was surprising and good. The collection was comprised of donations from wealthy 19th century French collectors, so spanned many areas. The best fish restaurant in town was not open as it was Monday. Anyone who's seen "The Invisible Woman": the death certificate for the still-born baby was from this town.
The second day, we went to the Normandy beaches and to Bayeux. We'd seen the tapestry before . Met a friend from home for lunch!!
Wanted more time here. We walked around town and to the castle, looking at the boats etc. We didn't have enough time to visit the W.W. 2 museum.
