NORMAN CONQUEST OF ENGLAND 1066
We decided on a full day tour of the beaches and museums from Overlord Tours. Aside from the weather, it was an excellent tour and we covered a lot of territory. I did not expect the beaches to be as beautiful as they are and I understand they are covered with beach lovers on sunny days. I enjoyed the personal stories told by the guide which included a visit to an old church in Angoville-au-Plain that was used as a hospital during the war - it still has blood stains on the benches.
We stayed at the highly recommended Le Relais De La Tour Louise B&B in Bayeux. It was clean, nicely furnished, good breakfast and very convenient. (We also had a view of the Cathedral from our bathroom window.)
