Today we went to Juno Beach...
1 of the landing beaches of D-Day, 6 june 1944.
On this beach the Canadian troops landed.
On the way over there we drove over 2 very big bridges!!!
This is the Pont de Normandie, very high and very beautiful!!
This bridge is more then 2 km long!
On the way back we drove over them again
and on this picture you can see the size of the bridge a little beter.
Before we crossed that bridge, we crossed another one...
one the way back we took this picture...
I think it looks like a rollercoaster!
At Juno Beach there's a museum with al lot of information about D-day
and about the Canadian troops.
We visited the museum and a bunker
and a Canadian volunteer showed us around!
In the museum were lots of items of the soldiers that fought in the war!
Outside was a beautiful statue of 5 soldiers!
And there was another statue, an inuksuk!
I really don't understand you humans!!!
My little beary brains just can't understand why you make war!
So many lifes lost and still you haven't learned!
You keep making war...
