Photographer's Note

Arromanches remains famous for his "artifical port", builded in june 44 by the Allied during the Landing of Normandy. But it's also a nice place to walk.
The fishing port of Arromanches was liberated by the 50th British Division on D-Day. Soon afterwards, Allied forces towed football-field size cement blocks called "mullberries" across the English Channel to form a breakwater. The wreckage of this giant floating harbor -- named Port WInston, because it was Churchill's pet project -- remain on the beach and off shore.
