Gold Beach (UK / Canada)

One minute, don’t talk, don’t read, no photos…. Just look and feel
Horses vs bicycles
The cliffs of Sant Malo
Camping is how I travel. Craft ciders from Normandy.
Eventually, despite the camp showers, you get uncomfortably unclean. Then you know you need a real hotel.
An anniversary: 30 May 1431, the English burn Jeanne d’Arc in Rouen
Echo your anguished cries
Go take your sister then by her hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving you don’t need us
