WWII Normandy, France









We took a tour of the German Bunkers off the coast of Normandy. It is so suprising that they are all still there and sitting next to beautiful farm fields. We were able to walk and clim the structures and get a feel for what it was like to look out on of these bunkers.

Chasing Sheep, Normandy


I was attempting to capture these sheep with my Takina lens. I would watch everyday from the small house in which we were staying, too see if they had starting to migrate near the road. Finally, my time had come. I walked quickly up to the sheep pasture. Sheep are very cautious and I tried to be so quiet and walk slowly. They were onto me. I even turned and walked away and got some flower shots to kind of trick them. I am better with cats





I did manage to get a few shots in that I liked. This guy really enjoyed this flower. It is funny to watch sheep and what they choose to eat. The contant Baaahhhing is kind of funny. I suppose because, I am never around sheep.




Cute little bell on this one. Much jingling was going on with this sheep was eating and walking about.


I just thought this was a cool gate and chain. Nice and rusty.

Lunch and then a Country Walk, Normandy











After leaving the Rouen market and we headed back to the small, Normandy town we were staying. We enjoyed a tasty farm lunch. After, I took a walk around the town to photograph. I loved the sheep. They making funny noises and have some have bells that jingle while they eat.

The squash was growing up over this wall. It must have been a huge plant. the wall was about six feet high. I took the photo from the road.

Clown and a man in Dress, Rouen

Not sure what is happening here. We saw the man in the dress with a bunch of friends not in dresses. We guessed it was a bachelor party. He posed with this funky clown man. Priceless!
