Zoo
“Zoo de Jurques We’re generally not a fan of zoos but I highly recommend this one. It has active breeding programmes with a heavy influence on education. Set in a huge forest it feels far from ‘zoo like’. The enclosures are huge, appropriate and well kept. Animals are all in very good condition and the keepers are friendly and helpful. There are 2 paths to complete with various feeding times to view, which are easy to follow. Parking is free. There are lovely play areas by the cafes and gift shops. The picnic area is well appointed by car park area P5. *Go in to the gift shop and request to leave for your picnic. They will stamp your hand and let you out!”

Beach
“Utah Beach is one of the two American landing zones in Normandy. This beach was created by British general Bernard Montgomery who wished to establish a beachhead directly in the Cotentin peninsula in order to capture Cherbourg faster, because of its deep water harbor and its major logistic importance.”

Beach
“The WWII Normandy landing beaches need no introduction. Your choice as to where you go. Lots of different museums. Re-enactments are usually carried out around the annual anniversary of the landing date (6th June 1944). All very sobering. Lamentably much of historic Normandy was destroyed in the process - mainly from Allied bombings prior to and during the Landings. ”

“Voulez-vous marcher sur l'eau ? En face de la plage du butin, la digue du ratier vous donne cette impression, sur des kilomètres. Attention seulement praticable à marée basse, les jours de grandes marées. Danger mortel sinon. Prévoir de bonne schaussures”
