Easter Weekend: Lisieux, Normandy, Lourdes

Mom and Dad outside the Basilica in Lisieux, France.

Overlooking the easternmost portion of Omaha beach.... The monument in the background displays the names of the five or so hundred Americans that died in this area of the invasion. By the way, several of them received the Congressional Medal of Honor...

A few hay burners in the Normandy countryside....

St. Bernadette's perfectly incorrupt body as seen lying in state in Nevers, France several hundred kms north of Lourdes.

Our group chillaxin' at a Cafe in Lourdes.

That's why it was a cloudy day.

In front of the grotto at Lourdes. The massive Church of the Immaculate Conception is directly above the grotto.
