Arromanches-les-Baines, France (Part 1)

This year’s spring break vacation in France included a trip to Arromanches-les-Baines which served as our base for our visits to Mont St. Michel, the D-Day beaches and war museums.  Our 17 year old  son is into anything military while the 14 year old daughter has studied World War history this school year and as such, was excited to be in the middle of where it happened. Arromanches-les-Baines was a historic place in the Normandy landings where an artificial port was built to unload supplies and troops.

We arrived early in spring and because of that, there were only a very few tourists. The walk from our AirBnB house to the beach and the main street was short and because the streets were so quiet (no cars nor people moving around at night), the place looked a bit eerie.  Actually, it seemed to me that we were in a huge Hollywood back lot, with set pieces surrounding us, ready for filming the following day. There I go with my producer’s hat!
