BAYEUX -- HOME OF THE FAMOUS TAPESTRY

September 24 & 25, 1998
Ever since Hans and I learned about Bayeux and its famous tapestry, we made it a priority to see it the next time we were in France. So after visiting his sister and exploring the Loire Valley and its chateaux, we made our way to Falaise, home of William the Conquerer, Caen and Bayeux. We stayed two nights in a 17th century farm, where they offered "Bed & Breakfast". That was an awesome experience. The first day we explored Bayeux, its town center with cobblestone streets and the "Tapisserie de Bayeux". The second day we visited the beaches of Normandy, only 10 kms away, including Longues-Sur-Mer, La Pointe du Hoc, Arromanches and Omaha Beach. All were part of our history and why we are free today.

    Your page brought back very solemn memories to our visit to the American cemetery at Omaha Beach and viewing the Bayeux Tapestry. That trip certainly is etched in my memory!

    Very enjoyable, Lori - your page brought back many memories of our visit there some years ago in pre-digital camera days!
