Some photographs from a brief stop at Utah beach on our tour of Normandy.

The view to the north west. In the distance you can just make out the eastern aspect of the Cherbourg peninsular.
Utah beach was the code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on D Day, June 6, 1944, during World War II.
