Friday, July 10

Today, Friday, was a day of sight-seeing with Bruno. He took us to the sea coast in France along la Manche (or as the Brits call it, the English Channel). We first stopped at La Coupole, a Second World War bunker complex. It was built by the forces of Nazi Germany between 1943 and 1944 to serve as a launch base for the V2 rockets directed at London and southern England.

In the museum we got to see a 3-D presentation of D-Day. It was very well done. Bruno got a kick out of seeing Greg and I in the glasses with the headphones. He thinks we are Stevie Wonder look-a-likes.

After the museum we went into nearby St. Omer, a beautiful city.

There we visited an old Catholic church.

We then drove up the coastline.

The countryside was beautiful here.

When we got back we were treated to a fine meal at the home of Bruno and Carine, Bruno and Aurelie's friends.

One more day (Saturday) left to go here in France before we go back home.
