I took this photo on a press trip to Normandy a few months ago. The trip was to learn about the anniversary of D-Day and to visit some of the amazing museums in the region. This is the beach at Arromanches where British and Canadian troops landed on D-Day in 1944. The black shapes in the sea are the remains of the Mulberry harbours which were used in the operation. There was so much to see and do in Normandy and the people were so friendly that I’d love to go back with the rest of my family another time.
