Great stuff. Got to spend a 3 day weekend there this past August. Based out of Caen, which is awesome in its own right. I noted a total of 343 "Normandy" pictures on my UK/Normandy pic disc. Many of the same shots.
While walking the various beaches and sights, I spent most of my time looking at the ground, HOPING to find a relic of some sort. Not one thing. BUT, I did manage to bag up a sample of sand from each beach and get it back thru U.S. Customs on my return. I did declare it on the form and was barely questioned about it. Whew!
This is what I've done with that memento of my trip.
