And we went further to other 

D-Day beaches

. This is Arromanches.

And we are going further...
Here are pictures taken on the way...

It seemed to me that even houses in these places differ, for example, from houses in the south of France where everything is open, gardens with flowers, etc. And here - everything is behind the fence, somehow...

We stopped for lunch in this town.
I do not remember its name now, but it's on the way.

There was an interesting beach.

Look carefully - there are so many scallop-shells!!!

This place is also from the map of "Operation Neptune"...

I noticed, by the way, that this operation is more often called here Overlord.

And here are some more photos of these places.
Different memorials and museums there are literally at every step. We did not have enough time, we visited only one of them, and pretty quickly...

And there were some technical issues.
To move towards D-day beaches, you need to cross the bridge, it's the toll one - €8 (one way).

I was worried about parking. You gotta leave the car somewhere for the night! But it was very simple - both in 

Le Havre 

and in La Rochelle, there were parking lots right next to the terminal - only a minute walk from the ship. They were free.
