    OK - just a few photo's from the way back home.

    Arromanches-les-Bains (D-Day landing site) and focal point for the commemorations.
    You can see the remains of the Mulberry Harbour that was built for the Allied forces to land ships and supplies to.

    Back to Ouistreham for the ferry via a baggage out of the car search. Luckily my french was capable enough to talk about why we'd been in Barcelona 24hrs prior & why we'd only been to the Motorshow! They were a little bemused

    Is the newest type 45 at the back Dauntless? or Diamond? :)

    Take it HMS Daring is in the front?

    Great panoramic at Arromanches :)

    Still got plenty to 'talk' about from this, but really saving it for a main site upload

    However, I just totted up the cost of this now I've got both my mastercard bills through from this period

    Things to note... Fuel used wasn't that much... Toll costs more than Fuel. Hotels are cheap.
