During our trip to Normandy, we obviously spent a lot of time along the beaches that were used as an entry point for the Allied Forces. One of our stops was the beautiful coastal town of Longues Sur Mer. Not only is this the home of a pretty cool gun battery, but it is home of some gorgeous beaches. Not forgetting what happened here in history, we still were able to appreciate the beauty of this area. The beaches here are bordered by cliffs, which is why the gun battery is here. Regardless of the history, this is a beautiful area of France and one that should be visited to learn about the history of the war and to take in the natural beauty of the area.
