Franco Fridays: Pointe du Hoc

Pointe du Hoc was my favorite of the D-Day sites we visited.  I wasn't familiar with the story of these brave Army Rangers, and it was so moving.  I also really enjoyed reading part of President Ronald Reagan's speech made there on one D-Day anniversary.

The site has been left undisturbed, so you can walk amidst the huge holes in the earth where bombs were shot from the sea.  KJ walked inside one so you could see how big the pits were.

As at Omaha Beach, you could see and walk inside German bunkers and see where their guns were anchored.

 Standing at the top of the cliffs you could still see the barbed wire coiled across as a barricade.

We could have stayed a lot longer than we did, but we were interrupted by a pretty strong rain shower.  I really need a waterproof camera case.
