Snapshots #25: Pointe Du Hoc

Before the exciting second lockdown, I was able to manage a couple of little coastal adventures. This one is Pointe du Hoc, outside of Criqueville-en-Bessin.

Pointe du Hoc for me is one of the reminders of the importance of the Normandy coastline in the 20th century. It is the littered ruins of structures both on and offshore alongside reels of barbed wire. It is pretty incredible how much history is in the ground here, yet it’s so easy to forget.

Travel Bug #3: Normandy for Foodies

After being in Canada for two years, I went to visit my parents in Normandy. I forgot how charming the tiny winding roads, patchwork fields, and stylized houses were.
