quefaire03-petitand you aren’t alone.

quefaire06-petitwhen there’s a dog, that means one thing. you are chez somebody. at someobody’s home. in la manche.

quefaire17-petit after all that eating, a walk is necessary.

quefaire19-petitnot just any beach. a normandy beach.

quefaire18-petitthe memories of history. of course.

quefaire35-petitbut also your own memories. of your friends. of all the trips out here.

quefaire20-petitso normandy beaches have double the meaning for you. they might be saturated with history that is important to the entire world, but they are also saturated with history that is important to only one person – you.
