Vacation Day - Tuesday, 15 May 2012

After our long bus ride and sightseeing in Paris yesterday, the ship departed from Le Havre at midnight.  The ship docked in Cherbourg at 7 a.m.

We haven't picked a tour for Cherbourg yet, but we hope to get on the Panoramic Cherbourg tour.

The publicity says that this three hour tour will discover the port of Cherbourg (I didn't know it was lost...), the Old town (will we see the New town, or is there one?), the military base, and the principal monuments (presumably these are statues, not gravestones).

Perhaps we'll have lunch in the city, or back to the ship.  The ship departs Cherbourg at 3 p.m.

I haven't been to Cherbourg before.  I have been to the American Cemetery and the Normandy Beaches.  Linda has not been there, but we judged that tour would be too strenuous for her after Paris the day before.

Glad to see you're posting daily, Randy. Is internet access less expensive than you expected?
