We left England by ferry yesterday and waved good bye to the white cliffs of Dover! Very nice ferry ride and entry to Calais!
Nice to be in France – but the most joyous event of the day – perhaps the trip – was to find out – our renal car had been upgraded to a midsize WITH A GPS system!!!! We call her Bessie and she did a FABULOUS job of getting us to Bayeux. What a relief. I didn’t have to look at the map once and Richard and I could actually converse without worrying about finding the next route. It was wonderful!
Had a nice dinner and good wine in Bayeux. The boys have gotten into the spirit of learning French and even conversed with the waiter a bit.
Today Rich and David are going to see the Bayeux tapestry and then we’ll all go visit the invasion beaches and a WWII museum. With Bessie – I am confident we’ll find everything!
Off to breakfast of chocolate croissants and cafe ole! We will miss the English breakfasts!
Good bye England!
