The La Fiere Bridge

The La Fiere bridge, with the Merderet River running under it, was a very popular place in the first days after D Day with both the US 82nd Airborne and German Army wanting it.

This may be the most photographed church roof in the world because of the well known incident involving paratrooper John Steele of the 505th PIR whose  parachute caught on the spire of the town church.

Art Class on a Submarine

We took an open air boat tour on the Seine and passed by this island that looked like a submarine with trees growing out the top.

Notre Dame

What’s a trip to Paris with a photo of Notre Dame.  I took many of the cathedral but this one taken from a boat trip down the Seine is a little different.
