France-Normandy

Here are photos from Normandy, France. We visited the area just one week after the 70th anniversary of D-Day in June 2014. We were told by our guide that the anniversary weekend was wall-to-wall people. That would have been nice to see, but it was also nice to not be crowded. Click here if you would like more information about the D-Day invasion of Normandy in World War II.

Stuart Gustafson personally took each photograph displayed, and the copyrighted images are owned by him. If you click on a thumbnail image, you will see a larger and more complete picture that opens in a separate window.
