The beach you disembark on is Omaha Beach in Normandy (France). Setting foot on the red sand on the beach, I was thrilled. To know that where my feet trod, many soldiers had lost their lives, wow...... I went to visit the American Cemetery, still in Normandy. Here there are 9,000 graves of American soldiers, Jews ...it was very emotional. Above all because of the impressive number of small white crosses.
The image sails crossing the sand , towing a small kind of tractor seemed like an unusual image. Later I found out that on the Normandy beach, they practice this sport that consists of traversing a sand using a kind of wind powered tricycle.
As part of our trip traveling around France, we stopped at a place that was very picturesque, although I do not know if it was really a true reflection of what went on there. For those who like history, you can find the name of this site and find out why it's famous. It is also easy to take aerial photographs, even at the time, so you can get an idea of how the whole area was.
